Subversion, Google Code, SourceForge and Mercurial importer

By on April 11, 2011

Did you ever wish it was easier to migrate your existing repositories to Bitbucket? Now it is!

When you create a new repository, you have the option of importing your existing Subversion, Google Code, SourceForge, or Mercurial repository directly into Bitbucket. The Bitbucket Subversion importer exports a working copy of your code, builds a new Mercurial repository and pushes the results to your new Mercurial repository on Bitbucket.

If you have already migrated your repositories to Bitbucket we have something for you as well. When forking a repository, you will see a revamped interface that extends on the work for the Subversion importer.

Get started importing an existing Subversion repository into Bitbucket!

      No, it doesn’t. It performs an “svn export” on the head of the repo.

        Great to see this new feature added. It’d be ideal if it did keep history, though obviously that is a lot more work.

    So glad to find the codemakers that are actively involved in violating the Patriot act. This is from a DOD cleared administrator that isn’t pleased at the violation of the Humatities project and erasure of JOSEPH TONER by renaming him as JOSEPH JONES> and someone better get that history back, as the Shubert Oganization can’t pay any of you enough to land in Guant. BTW, when you get caught, you don’t end up like Garcia. LOL> If you know who I am, then you know Bill Gates wanted MY code, and I will start to use it on all of YOU> he gave up in congress when they called me to testify. You are working with crap. And Billy didn’t get that code, its mine.

      No, not through Bitbucket’s UI. We may offer this time at some point in the future, but certainly not in the *near* future.
