Update: How to migrate from Google Code to SourceForge

By Community Team

As many of you already know, Google Code was set to read-only mode on August 24, 2015 in preparation for Google Code’s final farewell on January 25th, 2016. If you just caught the news, SourceForge has been offering Google Code projects a path to easily migrate from Google Code to SourceForge since March 2015, when Google announced their plans to progressively deprecate their free hosting and download service. Our importer, which Google mentioned in a page dedicated to support tools, has already been used for over 2000 imports since then.

What can I expect when migrating to SourceForge?

While the GitHub importer converts any SVN or Mercurial project to Git, only SourceForge offers a migration path from Google Code that allows you to keep your Git, Mercurial, or SVN project repos intact. And the SourceForge importer converts all your wiki pages, issues including attachments, and download files.

    I actually imported my project from Google code and I haven’t been able to figure out how to access it using SVN.
    My project is lcc1802 and I believe I may have to do a new checkout but if someone could tell me how to find the repository name that would help.

    The demo video promoted here is a bit off topic because it imports from GitHub and does not have source code!
