  • Thanks for the write-up: I was trying almost the same thing! I had imported a pretty big repository (made up of various subprojects) to git, which is sorta what you described a bit ago [perl.org]. I had also renamed some directories along the way, so when I tried to separate them up with git-filter-branch, it was failing with collecting all the revisions needed.

    I ended up writing two helper [unobe.com] scripts [unobe.com] to solve my problem, and I wish I hadn't glossed over --no-hardlinks because that would have saved quite a bit of time.
