When during a git svn clone you get an error message starting with “RA layer request failed: PROPFIND request failed on” it means you have to set your git svn proxy.
This is in a different location than the git proxy setting (it would be too easy if these were the same, right?).
So you do not get/set it through commands like these:
git config --global --get http.proxy git config --global http.proxy localhost:3128
Via Cannot do git-svn fetch behind proxy and git svn clone died of signal 11 under cygwin (thanks janos, Fredrik Pihl and User Pavel, I found out that you need to change these files (create the .subversion directory and servers file when they do not exist):
If you ever run in the same problem with the regular SVN client, then you need to change yet different files (why have 1 standard when you can have many?):
Ensure a section like this exists and fill in the blanks:
[global] # http-proxy-exceptions = *.exception.com, www.internal-site.org http-proxy-host = YOURPROXY.com http-proxy-port = YOURPORT # http-proxy-username = defaultusername # http-proxy-password = defaultpassword # http-compression = no # http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate # No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default. # No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled. # ssl-authority-files = /path/to/CAcert.pem;/path/to/CAcert2.pem<
