So I have been cloning a bunch of projects in my repository in order to migrate over to Git. I have been able to successfully clone all of them except for one. It happens to be the largest project, but I am not sure if this is relevant. During the clone, I am getting a 'git-svn died of signal 6' error. It is failing the Assertion that checks if a URI is canonical. Unfortunately it takes about 4 hours to reach the point where it fails, so making changes and re-cloning is extremely impractical. I read all about URI's needing to be canonical because of the way that svn handles URI's internally. I read all about changing the .git/config file by removing double slashes or trailing slashes... which I don't have any of. I just cannot figure out why only this project is failing. Does anyone have any ideas as to what specific about a project could be causing this when all of my 16 other projects cloned with no problem? Also, the project is in a very standard trunk-branches-tags format.
