Re: Migrating Subversion issues to ...

Overall the migration looks pretty good I would agree. I was impressed to
see things like dependencies come through pretty cleanly.

The one problem I have that I assume is related to this formatting is that
it seems like line wrapping does not happen as it normally would. So
descriptions etc seem like a series of fixed-width monospaced lines. A lot
of the Jira UI seems to expect it to be a block of text that it would line
wrap as needed. Or at least I assume that is what it would look like.

So many of the normal screens you cannot really read a lot of the text
without going into full screen.

That said, I cannot remember the last time I even went into IssueZilla. So
I cannot say this will impact me at all. Whatever you guys decide is OK
with me.
