I have a Project called "Untitled project". The Project page says
"A new home for your brilliant idea
Now that you've got a project, let's bring in some repos and get cracking."
There are NO repos.
I click on "Project settings" and then click on "Delete project" but the pop-up says
"You cannot delete this project because it still contains repositories. To delete the project you must first move or delete any repositories."
Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
I think I have worked out what the problem is. I found a repository created using Mercurial. BitBucket no longer supports Mercurial repositories. So the repository cannot be deleted (and isn't even listed if you go into the Projects listing). As a consequence, the project itself cannot be deleted.
Thanks Dave - that would be great (I will have to learn how to create a ticket!). I have no need for the old mercurial repository. It will have nothing of value in it. It would have been created when I first dabbled in using Bitbucket (I have been using Mercurial - via TortoiseHg for some time - obviously I am revisiting BitBucket to try and conquer my fear of the unknown.)
Thanks for the answer (and as you were writing your answer, I think I found the cause of the problem).
I had already tried your suggestion (made a repo, removed it so that again there were no repo's listed).
But this is the sort of "try this ..." suggestion that us newbies need.
