Documentation: git-svn: fix example for centralized SVN clone
The example that tells users how to centralize the effort of the initial git svn clone operation doesn't work properly. It uses rebase but that only works if HEAD exists. This adds one extra command to create a somewhat sensible HEAD that should work in all cases. Signed-off-by: Jan Krüger <> Acked-by: Eric Wong <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
