This question about importing a Mercurial Bitbucket repo into Github was closed as off-topic. I'm not sure how this substantively differs from this Meta question on Git. It seems pretty firmly in the "programming-tools" bucket. Is this sort of question actually off-topic?

  • Related else-meta (P.SE): Where does my git question go? That said, it should be a dup (as mentioned in the OP's self accepted answer) of an open question. – user213963 Jan 22 '14 at 3:20
  • @MichaelT, agreed it's a dup. It'd be nice if the question were closed for that reason instead, though not sure if that sort of power is in the hands of moderators. – Kirk Woll Jan 22 '14 at 3:29

    Yes, we can do that. I reopened the question and closed it as a duplicate of the question linked in the accepted answer. – Bill the Lizard Jan 22 '14 at 3:45
  • One of the things that could have helped (one of those "why would I do that?" but this is the case), if the OP had cast a close vote on their own question as a dup. Its a privilege you get at 250 rep That said, if you don't have the rep to cast normal close votes, you don't always see that link and think "I should do this."
