I have been trying to import projects from BitBucket into GitLab but it is becoming a bit of a chore. The issue is the following:
- The From bitbucket name contains dashes in the repository name
- The To GitLab name it suggests contains spaces
When clicking the Import button without making any changes I get this error:
Importing the project failed: Path can contain only letters, digits, ‘_’, ‘-’ and ‘.’. Cannot start with ‘-’, end in ‘.git’ or end in ‘.atom’
This isn’t a show-stopper because I can just change the To GitLab name to replace the spaces with underscores or dashes, but it does impact the user experience
Should this issue be raised on the GitLab repo?
