Re: [eigen] Bitbucket migration

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Dear Eigen developers,

First of all, I am not an expert with mercurial and I am fairly good
with git. I am in favor of switching to git.

I played a bit with fast-export[1]. The changes and same basic usage are
on my fork [3].

To see the result, either follow the steps in the README of my fork [3]
of fast-export or visit the temporary repository[4].

So far, here is what I did (or did not):

- I have an error related to unamed head in mercurial,

- I can convert all reference like to revisions or mercurial hashes that
follows the regex in [2].

- I did not try to convert URLs although it should not be hard.

- I manually edited the author file [5] so that they would fit git
author format. If you find yourself in the list and want to update it,
you can contact me.

It should not be hard to add more rules to the plugin convert_references
if anyone feels like doing it.
