Migrate from svn to Fossil
We first migrate to git, then to Fossil.
Migrate from svn to git
git svn clone https://<IP>/<path>/<repo-name>
git svn clone https://192.168.0.145/svn/src
This will get the complete history from the svn repository and create a new git repository with the original name.
Migrate from git to Fossil
cd into the git repository, then
git fast-export --all | fossil import --git newName.fossil
Cloning Windows repository from Linux to itself
- Create ssh access with a key
- Prepare a config file like the following
Host mywindows HostName 192.168.0.144 User Sabine Port 22 ServerAliveInterval 60 IdentityFile ~/.ssh/rsa-sabine.private
- Do the cloning like this:
fossil clone -v ssh://mywindows/D:/test1.repo?fossil=D:/fossil test2.repo
Things to watch for:
- Use the same Fossil version on both systems or at least don't have them differ to much in version.
- Do not use ".exe" when you give the path to Fossil on the Windows system with "fossil=D:/fossil".

using ssh from Windows to Linux
from this post: https://www.fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/5cf6bcc7fc?t=c
On Windows, Fossil calls "plink -ssh -T" to set up SSH tunnels by default, which relies on either the plink.exe from PuTTY or the one from SSH Communications. If you don't want to install plink.exe from either source, but instead want to use OpenSSH — perhaps the version recently added to Windows — you have to override this with the ssh-command setting:
c:\> fossil set ssh-command "ssh -e none -T"
ssh.exe will need to be in the %PATH%, of course.
You might want to make this setting global, so it affects all repos on that system.
