Summary0003704: Pull requests on Bitbucket may be lost on June 1, 2020

Quote from WubTheCaptain
Pull requests submitted on Bitbucket to existing Mercurial repositories may be lost. I'm reading from Atlassian Community forums there's no way to convert existing hosting repositories on Bitbucket from HG to Git and keep the PRs doing that.

There's some 5 pages of them for the Doomseeker project. I'm creating a child issue for this.

I propose we grab what we can with Wayback Machine, or wget to create a WARC capture and upload to Internet Archive.

ArchiveTeam on EFnet IRC may also be able to help, but collecting a list of 5 pages of PRs is not too tedious of a task to do by hand.

For me the done PRs are done - they served their purpose of getting the final work into the repository or were (rarely) rejected and would need to be redone anyway. There's of course some chance that we would want to reference them or, more likely, the discussions that were happening in them, but on the other hand it does feel to me a bit like hoarding.

I'm not sure if I feel qualified to decide on this, looking at how I tend to hoard stuff IRL: such as keeping 3 Samsung (DIN|PS/2) keyboards where one is still "in use", one is disgustingly dirty and one has borked keys and only just this week I have with a heavy heart decided to throw out one of them. The hoarder in me tells me "archive the PRs", but something also tells me it's not worth the effort.

In most cases PRs are just a suggesrion->revision comments->fixes with some back and forth in between discussing technical aspects. If we're saving some PRs, those should be the ones that either contain extra info like stats, or a more general project discussion that defines why an important decision was taken. I'm expecting these to be quite few, probably the hashing checker will be one for instance.

Now it seems this is more complicated, because Blzut3 has moved the project from Doomseeker/doomseeker to Doomseeker/doomseeker-hg and the links (in OP) are broken.

For WARC archival, it'd be best to preserve those original URLs rather than doomseeker-hg. [^]

I'm saying I'd still like to resolve this with archival (as a personal project at least), when I feel like doing it before the deadline.

If you need me to, I'm willing to move the repositories for a day or two so that you can perform the archiving that you want to do. Although I'm not entirely sure what the big deal is since it's not like old links will work in either case.
