I’ve been trying to import a large SVN repo (approx 400k commits) for the last 3 weeks. It seems to be taking an age and I can see lots of access activity at the SVN side so I know Phabricator is working it’s way through. I’ve got a few question on the import process to see if anyone else has had a similar issue or experience:
It seems to be tags that are causing a slow down on import where tags cover > 1000 files. I guess Phabricator goes off and looks at the contents of those files in the tag - is there a way to tell is to skip those as we’ll never review a tagging event?
We’ve waited 3 weeks to import stuff we’ll never be interested in reviewing as we’ll just be reviewing code change from now onwards. Is there a way just to ignore the historical stuff or tell Phabricator to stop importing? I’ve seen some documentation on forcing a repo to be marked as done but will that kill the thousands of tasks remaining in the queue/task tables?
