Welcome to the Vss2Svn project.
Welcome to the new Trac site for the Vss2Svn project.
About This Project
This combination of programs was designed by reverse-engineering the backend database structure of Microsoft's VSS repository. In doing so, we have made progress towards overcoming the inability of even Microsoft's own API to properly recover deep history from VSS. This also means that you don't actually need a copy of VSS or its libraries to convert your repository.
How To Convert Your VSS Repository To Subversion
You may have noticed that, unlike most open-source projects, this site does not have an attention-grabbing "Download" link prominently displayed on the homepage, and there is no "Quick Start" guide for the impatient. That's because converting your VSS repository is not a "grab and run" process. It requires you to understand a bit about how the process works, what your choices are, and what results you can expect.
The following sections will describe how to convert your VSS repository to Subversion.
See also the Glossary to understand the terms used within this project.
