Git is another Distributed Version Control System, not unlike Mercurial itself. There are times when converting is something you want to do.
For this example, we’re going to use the popular will_paginate plugin for Ruby on Rails, hosted by Github.
The repository URL is git:github.com/mislav/will_paginate.git.
Mercurial does not allow cloning remote Git repositories, so you first have to download it:
Now that we have the full Git repository locally, we can convert:
You’re done! If you look in the newly created repository will_paginate_hg, you will see that the entire history, as well as branches and tags have been converted to Mercurial. As with our Subversion example you can go ahead and upload the repository to our servers.
