Any experience with git-p4 to interact with Perforce repositories?

+2 votes

I'm a big Git fan and had the chance to "convert" some colleagues to the benefit of Git over Subversion, leading the conversion process and coaching them for their day-to-day use.
I'm now working in a place where the VCS is Perforce (sigh!). I must admit the cultural gap is non-negligible.
That being said, I did a quick search and found that there is git-p4 to use Git as a "client" to Perforce. Before getting that to work on my workstation, I'd like to know if anybody ever used that tool? If so, what kind of experience have you had with it? Are there any pitfalls, etc...
I'll probably get on setting that toolset in the next few days (next week) and will update this topic with any relevant info.

Is there any detailed document about how git p4 toolset works? I am curious how it tracks depot paths, bidirectional changes etc. I am totally confused about it now.

The problem I face is after creating git repository with "git p4 clone," I added several files into the repository. The folder of the files in Git has no corresponding Depot path in P4 client view configuration, and everytime I tried to use "git p4 submit" to sync changes back to P4, I got errors saying "error: filexxx: already exists in working directory". Anyone can guide me how to fix this issue?

I'm trying to build Git hosting server for a group of people.

  1. I see there are Git hosting that give ability to users to create and manage their repositories. I want to give user ability to create and manage their repository only using http. But in the instruction of http protocol, user with write privileges must login in order to create the repositories.
    Is it can work with http protocol or it must be with ssh?

  2. I would like get recommendation about a software if exist. Is there any software, I can use, that give the ability to see weby and/or visually view status of repositories on the Git server, without cloning or pulling a snapshot from the git server to my local machine and without login to the git server?
