I’ve always used the svn interface to GitHub as much as possible, because my day job version control is all Subversion, so that’s the workflow I’m used to.
However, I just got the email saying that password access is going away, which will break the svn https checkout.
I added an ssh key to my GitHub account, and told putty where my key is. I’ve run the test of using putty to prove that my key can access GitHub without difficulty.
However, I haven’t figured out how to use the svn bridge over ssh for GitHub. At work, when we access our work svn server with ssh key, I just use the
svn+ssh://... protocol, but when I tried that for my GitHub repo, it wouldn’t connect. The
SSH tab on the code download button doesn’t give a valid svn-style URL.
I haven’t been able to find an official document for how to make the ssh key using the svn bridge, and my searches elsewhere haven’t found anything yet.
Is there an official or unofficial guide for how to get the ssh key working using the svn bridge to GitHub?
