I asked this question many times at different levels. As far as I was
told – yes. The bulk import could only happen to the empty repo. If
you know how it could be done in another way – please let us know.

This is what we asked as well!. The answer was "there is no way".
Maybe there is a way, but it would require some significant
engineering effort from their side (e.g. additional development), so
our request was refused.

Right. Do you have an idea how we can move forward?
