While generally it is beneficial to share code between development groups, sometimes there are organizational reasons which require the code to be copied and handed off to each development group, such as a client contracting to have their own version of the product which they can develop features in.
With Timely Migration an existing code base with history can be copied to a new project or server with its own set of permissions or process templates.
Please note that Timely Migration only migrates Version Control data and not Work Item related data.
While most of the time you will want to migrate all of the history out of a repository, there may be certain circumstances where you intentionally want to limit the amount of history that you migrate. For instance if you are handing off copies of code to different development group, each group may be interested in having different amounts of history.
With Timely Migration you can select the changesets that you want to start the migration from and end the migration at.
