Import from Github is not working

Asked by Jasem Mutlaq on 2017-05-10

I started GIT import here but it's not importing anything in a couple of hours

Is there something wrong with my import address?

The import queue is substantially backlogged at the moment, because we recently upgraded the code import machines from precise to xenial, and this seems to have caused a database format change somewhere that requires all the bzr-svn-based imports to rebuild their revision caches from scratch. It isn't a problem with your import, and it should clear eventually once the system has rebuilt all its caches.

Do consider only creating a git-to-git import, though, rather than both a git-to-bzr import and a git-to-git import of the same repository. You should really only need one of them, and the git-to-git import is likely to be more robust.

Ok thanks for the update, I'll do a git-to-git only import. Hopefully it will go through at some point!

Thanks Colin Watson, that solved my question.

The queue has cleared now, so this should be behaving itself again.

How long on average would a new code configuration take to finish import from a git repository?
