I'm the company's git guy. Here's an actual, typical, interaction:

[Coworker] 12:08 PM:
Hi jallman112, good afternoon

[Coworker] 12:08 PM:
I get this error -

[Coworker] 12:08 PM:
git.exe clone --progress -v "[path to local SVN checkout]\repoName" "[path to local git folder]\repoName"

Cloning into '[path to local git folder]\repoName'...
fatal: '[path to local SVN checkout]\repoName' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

git did not exit cleanly (exit code 128) (515 ms @ 3/14/2019 12:07:26 PM)

[Me] 1:38 PM:
Looks like [path to local SVN checkout]\repoName is not a git repo

    Just import everything to your git server, and shutdown svn.
    Without telling anyone. Then take the day off.

    eventually they will figure it out, and you will never hear about it again.
