Re: Migrating ClearCase data to Subversion

Thanks All for your help,

I will try the Polarion tool,

I am also looking at simplified ways to do the job.

I have to propose a solution for projects asking to migrate from CC to SVN,
on Unix and Windows.

And we cannot let the ClearCase vob live forever - maybe one year, not
more, because ClearCase is expensive, and we cannot administer two
repositories for every project.

Most of the time, projects are not interested to keep all SCM details, they
don't ask for preserving change dates, authors or even comments (afaik).
Projects would like to get the versions that were delivered, the major
versions and especially the version running in production.

I don't think there is real sensitive data, but there is surely binaries -
I cannot avoid them. Vob's size is sometimes big, tens of Gb, or more.

They need to get in the new repository :
- The main=trunk branch,
- All the other significant integration branch,
- And the label/tag lines on these main and integration branches.

The project will select : the branches and the labels to migrate.

I'd like to preserve :
- The relation (svn copy) between branches, and between labels/tags and
branches.
- The refactoring from a version to another on a same branch (svn mv/rm).

I think I will create one SVN revision per label/tag.
I have to read again the manual about svn properties to understand what to
do !
