This is a simple post which lists the basic equivalent commands for both git and svn version control systems.

Initial checkout from existing repo for a given branch git clone; cd sonatype-tycho; git checkout origin/tycho-0.10.x svn checkout
Update locally checked out files from central repo git pull svn update
List locally changes files/folders git status svn stat
Diff locally changed file git diff somefile.txt svn diff somefile.txt
Revert locally changed file git checkout somefile.txt svn revert somefile.txt
Revert ALL local changes (except untracked files) git reset --hard HEAD svn revert . -R
Add new file git add file.txt svn add file.txt
Add new folder recursively git add folder svn add folder
Delete file git rm file.txt svn rm file.txt
Delete folder git rm -r folder (non-recursive by default; use -r to recurse) svn rm folder (recursive by default; use -N to not recurse)
Commit changed file to central repo git commit -m "message" file.txt; git push svn ci -m "message" file.txt
Ignore files/folders (in the current folder) echo "target *.class bin" >.gitignore
git ci -m "gitignore" .gitignore
svn propset svn:ignore "target *.class bin" .
svn ci -N -m "svn:ignore" .
