    Very same issue here, doesn't matter if I use git:// or http://

    NOTE: Should say that this isn't github - I'm trying to clone from git.libssh.org

    I'm getting the same:

    I'm having the same issue when I use the UI to import located at:


    ... and I've already authorized the app on the Github end so I am not sure if I should open a new issue. When I go to "view log", it simply reloads the page.

    I am also seeing the "destination path already exists and is not an empty directory" problem too.I am attempting to import from Unfuddle. It had worked yesterday with a different repo on unfuddle....

    Same problem here, tried with two private repositories from github. It should be noted that i had cloned and deleted those repos earlier, could that create the conflict?

    @picktags we're not aware of any issues with the importer. Care to share the import log (copy/paste or a screenshot like above) with us at support@bitbucket.org ?
