That’s it we’ve made the switch to TFS! Now I’ve got to migrate over our SVN repos. These projects have been ongoing for a while and I don’t have the luxury of leaving behind our commit history. So I did some searching around on the web and found a FREE way to get this done. This is what worked for me.
In the process of moving SVN repos over to TFS using the svn2tfs tool and I needed to get the first revision for a rather large repo. I found this command which returns me exactly what I needed. NOTE: This may take awhile if you have a lot of commits.
Fire up command prompt and type in:
svn log -r 1:HEAD --limit 1 svn://path/to/repo
