Migrating Subversion issues to ...

                Hi All,

 

Here at the hackathon in Berlin we are discussing issue trackers, and more
particular how we should eventually move our issues to ASF infrastructure.
An old TODO.

 

Ivan just converted the data of the much smaller Serf issuetracker to Jira
for the Apache Serf project, and he offers to perform the migration for
Subversion too.

 

 

I think we really have 3 options:

[ ] Keep our issues on Tigris

[ ] Migrate our issues to a new Bugzilla instance hosted by ASF infra

[ ] Migrate to the standard ASF Jira installation

 

In Jira we can keep our existing issuenumbers, while for Bugzilla we would
need a separate instance.

 

Personally I would choose the third option if we aim to keep as much history
as possible (including ascii art and attachments) available after the
migration. The information in our issue database is just too valuable to
lose.. Even if it will take a few more years to get there.
