Has anyone been able to get the instructions at 
<> to work?  Are you 
supposed to change the url for "origin" in the old clone of the 
repository as described above?  If I do, then the "get fetch transfer" 
step says there are no common elements and clones everything.  If not I 
get a bunch of unresolvable references on this step after which none of 
the transfer/xxx branches exist.  I suspect that my git repository is 
just so hosed up that it won't convert easily.
