Ah, right. Into my HOWTO file *now*.

But after using the command I obtain 

git switch HEAD
git switch copyright
git switch default
git switch documentation
git switch fontlockhang
git switch hairyblocks
git switch mac_init
git switch modernize
git switch shellcomplete
git switch strings
git switch usage1
git switch wisent-parser

Git branch -a still 


* modernize
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/default

error: src refspec mac_init does not match any
error: failed to push some refs to 

>   git push hg-remote remotes/origin/modernize:modernize

git push hg-remote remotes/origin/modernize:mac_init
error: The destination you provided is not a full refname (i.e.,
starting with "refs/"). We tried to guess what you meant by:

- Looking for a ref that matches 'mac_init' on the remote side.
- Checking if the <src> being pushed ('refs/remotes/origin/modernize')
  is a ref in "refs/{heads,tags}/". If so we add a corresponding
  refs/{heads,tags}/ prefix on the remote side.

Neither worked, so we gave up. You must fully qualify the ref.
hint: The <src> part of the refspec is a commit object.
hint: Did you mean to create a new branch by pushing to
hint: 'refs/remotes/origin/modernize:refs/heads/mac_init'?

In the foreseeable feature, matlab-emacs should be moved to
github/gitlab and I thought of dealing it with your script (BTW I said
plugin because hg-git calls itself plugin, but since hg is written in
python that makes sense).

So I have to clone the repository (from gitlab/github and then use your
script, while using the mirror option would be possible, it think the
solution with for-each-ref is what I need)
