CVS2GIT error - fatal: Branch name doesn't conform to GIT standards: refs/tags/?

vmukku

Hi Dev Team,

 

I was trying to migrate source code from CVS to GIT using cvs2git with 2.5.3 version in Linux platform. But when I tried to run following below command experienced “fatal: Branch name doesn't conform to GIT standards: refs/tags/?” error.

 

[root@linux]# git fast-import --import-marks=../../cvs2svn-tmp/git-marks.dat </tmp/dump.dat

fatal: Branch name doesn't conform to GIT standards: refs/tags/?

fast-import: dumping crash report to fast_import_crash_7628

 

Note: I have successfully generated DAT files without any error.

 

 

Could you please check and let me know the possible solutions.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Rajasekhar.

i have tried to verify the tags and branch using ref spec command but didn't
give any error.

git check-ref-format "tags/<some-tag>" && echo "Valid tag" || echo "Invalid
tag"

i have been blocked since from long time due to this error, your response on
this matter will be greatly appreciated.
