Finally moved my old cmakeant project from google-code to github (I have been meaning to do this for ages). In case you are trying to do the same, here are the steps:
Download the mercurial repo from google code
hg clone https://email@example.com/p/cmakeant/ cmakeant-hg
Use fast-export to convert the mercurial repository to git. Note: I needed to add mercurial on my
git clone git://repo.or.cz/fast-export.git export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/Cellar/mercurial//2.3.1/libexec/:$PYTHONPATH
Create a new git repo and clone the mercurial repo
git init cmakeant-git cd cmakeant-git ../fast-export/hg-fast-export.sh -r ../cmakeant-hg/
Create .gitignore, readme and license and commit any changes
cp .hgignore .gitignore vi .gitignore vi README.md wget http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.txt git add -n . # verify files added git add . git commit
Create a new repo on github (using the web interface).
Set the origin on your local repo and push the changes to github
git remote add origin https://github.com/IainHull/cmakeant.git git push -u origin master
Finally move the issues from the google code tracker to github. (I found some alpha code that could do this, but decided to import the few issues I had manually).
