is the mercurial repo data still available?

I see slugs of my mercurial bitbucket repos still available. I just realized that I still need data from one of them.

Is it possible to get it?

Hi @Dima Pasechnik, welcome to the Community!

Mercurial repositories became read-only as of July 1st. As a read-only repo, you should still be able to clone it.. 

You can find some tips on what to do with your Mercurial repos in our article Sunsetting Mercurial support in Bitbucket. If you browse this Community, you'll also be able to find other threads where people shared their experiences and tips for the migration.

Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please let us know and we'll be happy to continue helping you. 


hg clone does not work though on this url though, how am I supposed to clone it?


It is a public repo, you know.

hg clone
http authorization required for
realm: HTTP

It is a public repo, but still... Can you open it up? Neither my current Atlassian password with the username dimpase

nor my ssh keys work

specifically, with ssh I have

$ hg clone ssh://
remote: Repository is in read only mode.
abort: no suitable response from remote hg!
