Migrating Off Google Code

September 6, 2015

Of Course I waited too late to get off Google Code. I finally managed to migrate to assembla by doing an “svnrdump” and importing that to assembla. The repository is now here https://www.assembla.com/spaces/lcc1802/subversion/source

I’m not really bitter about google but that was really annoying. There was theoretically a migration path from google code to github and to sourceforge but github meant git which I just could not get my head around.

In the end I:

  1. did the svnrdump of the google code repository (svnrdump https://lcc1802.googlecode.com/svn >source.repo.dump – the svn command line tools are installed along with tortoisesvn
  2. compressed that file to source.zip
  3. imported that file at http://www.assembla.com after setting up an account
  4. renamed each of the working folders on my programming computer(c:/lcc42/examples and /include and documents/lcc42)
  5. .did a new checkout of each of the three folders in the repository
  6. updated the examples directory where i had changed it after google code went read only
  7. committed the changes
  8. repeated 4 & 5 on my other computer to bring it up to date

Everything seems ok now but time will tell and i’ve saved the old source.
