Keeping authorship when importing from GitHub to


I’ve just imported a project from GitHub into my account. All the original commits where done using a email address. I’ve added this email address to my GitLab profile, although I cannot verify it (it’s a noreply account).

The imported project at GitLab shows a ‘0 commits’ count, even though you can see the actual commits if you click on the number. The author in those commits links to my GitLab profile page, too. Apart from that, there’s also no activity on my profile reflecting the imported contributions.

Have I done something wrong, or is it just not possible to keep the contributions when importing from GitHub?

Thanks in advance.
