Getting weird import error from repo at (

Steps to reproduce.

  1. Go to import repository
  2. Insert repo address "call-recorder-for-android" selecting 'google code' from dropdown "Source"

    15:43:24 svn import for: 15:43:24 Checking out 15:43:28 A danielo11/call-recorder-for-android 15:43:28 Exported revision 49. 15:43:28 Done 15:43:28 Subversion checkout successful 15:43:28 Creating new hg repository... 15:43:28 nothing changed 15:43:29 Unable to convert svn checkout to hg 15:43:29 Svn checkout failed: <class 'bitbucket.apps.async.tasks.ImportException'>: Command failed. Return value: 1

Is this error specific to repo?

Thanks for looking into my request.

    Hi daniel,

    It looks like the repository you're trying to import isn't set up correctly. The recommendation for SVN is to have your code within the trunk directory, not at the same level. Our Google Code importer expects this convention, and failed because there are no files in the trunk directory.

    In this case you can work around the convention by selecting 'Subversion' as the import source. For the URL you can use You will get a warning that it doesn't point to trunk, but the import should complete.
