Deleted repos are not deleted (BB-7591)

Issue #6446 resolved

created an issue

I created a repo called XX but it was deleted later. Now a friend is transfering me one of his repos, called also XX, and Bitbucket is not allowing the transfer since "You already own a repository of this name".

How can I accept the transfer?

    Hi Carlos,

    This problem occurs if you have deleted a repository but have included a redirect. This should not matter, so I have added this to our backlog to fix. In the meantime, you can do this:

    1. Create a new repository, named XX
    2. Delete the repository, do not include a redirect
    3. Accept the transfer request.

    Cheers, Brian
