Time for a little housekeeping

By on August 30, 2013

We’ve got two announcements today about services we will be shutting down in the coming weeks. Their use has waned, and it’s time to put them out to pasture.

The Bitbucket Google Group

A few years ago we started this forum to allow our users to interact with each other and the Bitbucket developers. Since that time, much has changed and we’ve added many more avenues for getting help with Bitbucket as well as Atlassian’s other products. To that end, on 1, October 2013 we will permanently set this forum to read-only mode. In its place, we encourage you to use Atlassian Answers for the same questions you’ve always had. Answers has a few advantages over the forums, such as:

To sign up, simply visit https://answers.atlassian.com, click login, then sign up under the login boxes. Once your email is confirmed, you’ll have full access to Answers, not to mention all the Atlassian services linked with Atlassian ID, including: support.atlassian.com (for ALL support, including Bitbucket), jira.atlassian.com for bug reports for Atlassian’s other products, confluence.atlassian.com for leaving comments on our documentation, and more in the future.

Subversion to Mercurial bridge

For some time now, the Subversion to Mercurial bridge we offered hasn’t worked in numerous situations and cases. So, we’ll be shutting it down officially on 1, October 2013. This should only affect a very small group of users in the community, but it is important that they know this is coming.

    Is Subversion to Mercurial bridge the feature that allows importing svn repos?

      No, the Subversion to Mercurial bride allowed you to use a Subversion client to access a Mercurial repository.
