Error when importing from Bitbucket


Our team is moving from Bitbucket (mercurial) to Github (hopefully) and as a first step, im testing out the import-tool. The import starts out fine, but then i get an error. The first time i tried, it said something like “Repository too large”, then i retried and got “There was an error importing commits.”

Is there no way to see a more detailed failure-log?

Has anyone experienced similar issues when importing from Bitbucket?

I had the same issue while trying to move a repository from bitbucket to github. there was no large files and repo size was small. I ended up doing the import manually by doing a bare clone, add a new origin for github and then push to github origin using --mirror flag.

Facing the same problem. Repo size is around 25mb only.
