just started to use scm-manager, great tool! - have some code managed in an old ms-sourcesave system, what is the best way to bring this to scm-manager? - what is the best way in a windows-environment to work togethter using scm-manager? Tortoise HG? What workflow, first create repo localy then go to scm an create one on the server?

Thanks for some help

    The migration depends on which repository system you would like to use. Because you mentioned Tortoise HG, i think you would like to use mercurial. For the migration of your sourcesafe repositories to mercurial, have a look at:

    The best way for a team in a windows environment, depends on the tools you use. If you use a ide with support for mercurial, i would prefer the tools from the ide. If your ide has no support, then Tortoise HG is a good starting point. I create the repository first on scm-manager and execute the clone command on the client, because this way sets the web.default property to the remote repository.

    Next time please use the mailing list (https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/scmmanager) for questions like these.
