import via "anonymous" ssh (BB-7620)

Issue #6418 closed
OpenSolaris
created an issue

Various projects have to move from opensolaris.org over the next month or so, but access to hg.opensolaris.org is only allowed via ssh for security reasons.

There's a special "anon" (anonymous) account for hg.opensolaris.org that allows ssh pull access and does not require a password or ssh key.

It would be handy if the import code feature allowed this setup. Here's an example of the public clone steps normally taken for an opensolaris.org repository:

hg clone ssh://anon@hg.opensolaris.org/hg/pkg/gate

    Correct; the Repositories -> Import repository option found on the bitbucket navigation bar once you login.

    Right now if I select "mercurial" for repository type and attempt to use that it says:

    Unsupported protocol. Please use 'http://', 'https://' , 'svn://' or 'git://.'
