Hi all,

I know and I guess that has been asked a few times.
Is it possible to convert a git repo with messages to a mbox file and
how is that done?

According to the install guide for Public-Inbox you don't need to
install the whole server instance but just use git clone or git fetch to
get the repo.
But it doesn't state what to do after cloning.

Greetings and thanks,
