# Migrating from SVN to GitLab
SVN stands for Subversion and is a version control system (VCS).
Git is a distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) system.
There are some major differences between the two, for more information consult your favourite search engine.
Git has tools for migrating SVN repositories to git, namely `git svn`. You can read more about this at
[git documentation pages](http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-and-Other-Systems-Git-and-Subversion).
Apart from the [official git documentation](http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-and-Other-Systems-Migrating-to-Git) there is also
user created step by step guide for migrating from SVN to GitLab.
[Benjamin New](https://github.com/leftclickben) wrote [a guide that shows how to do a migration](https://gist.github.com/leftclickben/322b7a3042cbe97ed2af). Mirrors can be found [here](https://gitlab.com/snippets/2168) and [here](https://gist.github.com/maxlazio/f1b593b0d00aa966e9ca).
