I've been tasked to migrate our document repository (install docs, user manuals, etc. not code files) from it's current home on a Sourceforge server to a new Alfresco server. My team really wants to keep the document version history. Does anyone know of a way to do this migration besides manually downloading each revision?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Are you still going to have access to the Sourceforge version after the migration? If so then preserving the history is not really an issue. You won't need to refer to old versions as often as you think you will and when you do you can check Sourceforge. –  ChrisF Jun 7 '11 at 15:30
Well the plan is to eventually decommission the Sourceforge server. –  Saabster Jun 8 '11 at 13:31
Are you happy writing code in any of JavaScript, Java or Python? (The way that springs to mind would involve a small amount of code) –  Gagravarr Jul 9 '11 at 16:04
