Sorry if this is a kind of noobish question, but I couldn't find a solution to this.
I forked a repository from another account to my Bitbucket one. Now, I'd like to detach this fork. As for now in the repository overview I can read "Fork of: the original repository"; I'd like to remove this, but at the same time I'd like to preserve the commit history.
How can I do it?
I read from another answer that I should just remove the remote, but I couldn't find any remote variable in the configuration menu of the repository.. Where is that supposed to be?
I can't find anyway to remove the "fork of" relationship either. On GitHub this can only be done by a request to support, but is typically completed within a day or two.
If we're effectively taking ownership of a code base (where the original owner wants to keep their own record) are we best to simply clone and commit into a blank repo?
I'm afraid this is actually not possible. Short of deleting the original repository, the relationship cannot be broken. Note that this is not really out of any philosophical reason, but more something we have never gotten around to. If you feel strongly, please raise an issue at https://bitbucket.org/site/master
