Issue #6418 new

import via "anonymous" ssh (BB-7620)

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

    Hi,

    Apologies, but I do not understand this request. Are you transfering code from hg.opensolaris.org to bitbucket.org using our Importer tool?

    Cheers, Brian

    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://.'
