I think this question is not particularly specific to Bitbucket, but a general batch processing problem that includes working with a VCS a bit.

I would develop an external script (probably in Python) that would do something like this:

  1. Connect to the Bitbucket REST API and get all repositories
  2. Iterate over the repos and clone those one by one to the local filesystem
  3. (now you have a local copy of everything that you can process)
  4. Create a new empty repository "Result" through the Bitbucket REST API
  5. Also clone "Result" to the local filesystem
  6. Process the local files
    1. Match the keywords to the filename
    2. If it matches, copy the file to the result
  7. (now you have the result in the "result" local clone)
  8. "git push" the result
