need to transfer from git repository to VSTS

Hello,

I want to transfer a git repository over to a VSTS repository. Is there any tool out there that will let me do that. There is git-tf (explained here: http://blog.simontimms.com/2013/04/02/importing-a-git-repository-into-tfs/) but it fails to do the following:

* transfer original authors.
* transfer original date and time.
* transfer all branches.

I need a tool that does everything git-tf does plus all the above.

I don't think this is the right place to ask. Most of us would start with "why not use Bitbucket instead?"

+1 to Bitbucket :)

Hi Gibran, 

There's always a way, although it might take a couple of steps.  

Did you already find this page too in your initial search?

As for the branches, it'd be best to consolidate down to a single branch, then transferring.  Once transferred, resuming your branching model would be best.  I think if you tried to do all of this at the same time, you'd get into a spot real quick.
