Stash - How to clone an external repository and keep in downstream sync?

Hi,

is there any plugin which allows to clone an external git repository (be it e.g. github or any other) and possibly to keep it in sync (downstream, st. like `git fetch --all`)?

Thank you for any hint,

Marian

There is no plugin to do this. (If the other end is also a Stash/BitBucket instance, there is a plugin for the other end to auto-push to the target.)

The easiest solution is to set up a scheduled job to pull to a local clone from the external source and push it to another remote (the internal copy). [We do this as a TeamCity task, but you can also implement it with cron/Windows Task Scheduler/whatever.]
