GitMover

A Python script to migrate milestones, labels, and issues between repositories.

There was once no easy way to migrate your team's collaborative work (Milestones, Labels, Issues) to another repository. This was especially thorny for teams moving a project into GitHub Enterprise, or open sourcing an existing project by moving it out of GitHub Enterprise. This is a tool to help that process.

Dependencies

GitMover is just a Python script. You'll need requests, and argparse installed. Install them with pip: pip install requests argparse.

Usage

$ git-mover.py [-h] [--destinationToken [DESTINATIONTOKEN]]
                    [--destinationUserName [DESTINATIONUSERNAME]]
                    [--sourceRoot [SOURCEROOT]]
                    [--destinationRoot [DESTINATIONROOT]] [--milestones]
                    [--labels] [--issues]
                    user_name token source_repo destination_repo

For authentication, GitMover uses a personal access token, which can be generated in your GitHub Profile settings.
