If you are forced to use SVN, you can still use Git. Git is a great SVN client. When your SVN repository has multiple branches and you must work on them, Git can also handle this.
First you must define a new SVN remote in your Git repository. When you look into the file
.git/config, you will find the following:
[svn-remote "svn"] url = svn+ssh://my-svn-repo fetch = :refs/remotes/git-svn
This is the definition of the default SVN remote created by
git svn clone svn+ssh://my-svn-repo. You can simply add the following bellow this default remote.
[svn-remote "svn-second-branch"] url = svn+ssh://my-second-svn-branch fetch = :refs/remotes/git-svn-second-branch
This adds a new SVN remote named
svn-second-branch once you have fetched it with
git svn fetch svn-second-branch, it will be available in Git with the name
If you want to check it out, run
git checkout git-svn-second-branch -b my-local-branch.
