The documentation for using BFG to migrate to Git LFS states that we should push all changes first and that "Any work that has not been pushed will be impossible to merge later" (https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/use-bfg-to-migrate-a-repo-to-git-lfs-834233484.html). Is just pushing changes sufficient, or do I need to merge everything into one branch too? I don't want to end up in a situation where I push my main branch and my feature branch, run BFG on both branches, and find that I can't merge the new feature branch into the new main branch.
Pushing is all that is needed.
In step one when you clone with the
--mirror flag it downloads all branches regardless of if they have been merged or not.
So as long as you get all developers to stop and push their branches and make NO changes until they have downloaded the BFG converted version then you will have no problem merging branches again.
