Friends, i have a project host on a git repository. The project had around
41 commits and size of around 375MB. I wanted to convert this repository to
a hg repository.
I tried "hg convert" utility to convert the git repo to hg. The process
started converting the git repo but hanged (did not stop) midway. I let the
process run for more than half hour but it did not give any error nor did it
exit. After some time, I had to forcefully kill the process.
I am currently using
hg 2.0 version and
git version 188.8.131.52
After trying and failing with the above process for 2-3 times, I went to "hg
clone git repo" method. Even this process hung indefinitely.
