It seems have forgot to update to OpenSSH 8.8 and as the result I lost my CLI access to my repos (public and private). I checked and the repos I have on and @codeberg work just fine and as expected. I'm thinking of moving 3 of my main repos to @codeberg . Does anyone knows an easy way top do so? Two of my repos have Wiki, and one of them has few posted issues which I prefer to bring over with the code.

As an update to ’s situation, they finally replied back to my comment after 3 days basically saying that they have made a blog post about it. The blog post which dates back to 2021-10-05 states that OpenSSH update has been released on 2021-09-26 and they are working on it

Did you get it? A multi million dollar company acknowledges the issue with their main business after 9 days in a blog post, and they haven’t even have an ETA on solution after 17 days!!

@Mehrad Wondering if this still works:

There are other similar scripts available, but some appear very outdated and / or require admin access to the machine (don't properly use the available API functions)

Also try your luck in other channels, e.g. our issue tracker or the #Gitea community - we're sure you're not the only one who was looking for such a migration.

@Mehrad @codeberg If you are just looking at migrating the code, the git migration tool would work just fine, but comments on PRs,etc.. wouldn't be brought over.

@gitea I tried but it failed and showed an upside-down gitea cup.

I was thinking if it doesn’t work because either or a combination of:

- I have 2FA (Yubikey) setup
- The repo was private


ah yeah, 2fa would stop that. IIRC you could try with an "app token" instead of your password.



I just tried that. I created an "App Password" for my Birbucket account and gave it full "read" permission to all my repos. I then used that password in the "new migration" using HTTPS (not git://) and I tried with both addresses (with and without `.git` ending) and every time it failed as presented in the screenshot.

What am I missing?
