In the future you might want to check out Reposurgeon - gitlab.com/esr/reposurgeon
However I did almost exactly the same thing using git and scripts - incrementally improving at each step until I was done. Well worth it in the end.
Thanks for the tip, I've never heard of it. I'll check it out and see if I could do the same with that tool.
I tried it out and I couldn't figure out how to use it in a reasonable time. I spent more time with it than with this git-only solution and didn't get even half way to solving my problem. I posted my response here: dev.to/detunized/git-fu-reposurgeo...
Thanks for the tip anyway =)
