Below is a simple Python script that will traverse your online SVN repo and run the necessary commands to convert it to Mercurial. This is probably useless to most, but it saved me a great deal of time converting a large set of repos so I figured posting it couldn’t hurt:
SVN_REPO = ‘https://svn.dlasley.net’ #< Web location of SVN repos HG_PATH = r'/home/hg/data' #< Local location for newly converted HG repos # DO NOT EDIT PAST THIS LINE import subprocess import urllib2 import os import re # Extract SVN repos from web based front end svn_repos = re.findall(r'
# Loop svn_repos and perform conversion
for repo in svn_repos:
hg_path = os.path.join(HG_PATH, repo)
if not os.path.isdir(hg_path): #< Make clean HG dir if needed os.mkdir(hg_path) # Perform HG Convert command on repo and print results print subprocess.check_output(['hg', 'convert', '%s/%s' % (SVN_REPO, repo), repo]) }}} More detailed instructions for conversion of SVN to HG can be found [[https://code.google.com/p/support/wiki/ConvertingSvnToHg|here]]
