Bitbucket is deprecating Mercurial


Recommended Posts


Whoever is still using Mercurial on Bitbucket, it's time to migrate to GIT.

Bitbucket is deprecating Mercurial:


Here are the key dates as we sunset Mercurial functionality:

  • February 1, 2020: users will no longer be able to create new Mercurial repositories
  • June 1, 2020: users will not be able to use Mercurial features in Bitbucket or via its API and all Mercurial repositories will be removed.

All current Mercurial functionality in Bitbucket will be available through May 31, 2020.


The procedure is easy enough:

  • Install stuff
    • virtualenv -p python2.7 ~/python
    • . ~/python/bin/activate
    • pip install dulwich urllib3 brotli ipaddress
  • or if you don'd mind installing stuff directly into your System
    • sudo  pip-2.7 install dulwich urllib3 brotli ipaddress
  • And then follow the instructions on https://hg-git.github.io

Windows users will need a slightly different procedures, but it's essentially the same thing.

Some older KSP projects are hosted in Bitbutcket, and perhaps some of them are using Mercurial. It seems a good time to clone and convert them for historical reasons!
