Git after Redmine migration

I have migrated our projects and issues from Redmine successfully. I am now trying to get the Git Version Control Viewer to recognize our commits. The issue numbers changed from Redmine during the CSV import. Any help in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks.

this is what i see in the log file.

org.eclipse.jgit.errors.NoRemoteRepositoryException: ssh://xx@xx.xxxx.com:2/xxx/.git: ERROR:gitosis.serve.main:Arguments to command look dangerous

New commits now show up but I am still looking to migrate the old commits from Redmine to Jira. Thanks in advanced.

Git's such a wonderful tool that let's you rewrite each commit even after it's done. So knowing new JIRA issue keys you can replace your whole git commit history and replace each Redmine key with it's JIRA counterpart.

There's a simple intro to this at http://mm0hai.net/blog/2011/03/10/rewriting-git-commit-message-history.html

You'll have to dig deeper and test to fit your needs.
