Transfering Git repositories
Create a new repository on your desired host (e.g Github, GitLab, BitBucket). It’s important to create a completely empty repository, so make sure not to select any option such as ‘Initialise this repository with a README’ or similar.
Checkout the existing repository from CCPForge. It is important to use a clean copy of the repository and to use the --bare flag:
git clone --bare ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/gitroot/PROJECT cd PROJECT
(see the ‘Git > Access Info’ tab of your project for the exact URL)
Push the repository, including all branches and tags, to the new repository:
git push --mirror NEW_REPOSITORY_LOCATION
Delete the copy of the repository that you just cloned, since it is a ‘bare’ repository, not a normal working copy.
cd .. rm -rf PROJECT
Clone the new repository to start working in.
git clone NEW_REPOSITORY_LOCATION
