Bitbucket was born as a Mercurial hosting, and now the service is being stripped of Hg by Atlassian. Atlassian warned that it will just remove the repos. It doesn't seem to care to archive them. That's why you are here.
To use the script, you will need to edit
REMOTE variable to point to your remote Mercurial repository. When your run the script, it will download
hg-git, clone and convert your repo, and drop you into the shell in newly converted
git repository, which you can immediately
git push to GitHub, GitLab or another hosting of your choice.
