Re: Proposal to deploy GitLab on

Does the plan consider a tool like bugzilla2gitlab, but removing

We need a much better migration plan than that. If we don't have a 
script to migrate Bugzilla issues, comments, and attachments to our
new GitLab instance, then we should not be considering using GitLab's
issue tracker at all.

I suspect that scripting it at an high level using web APIs or even a
local ORM would take an inordinate amount of time, but I glanced at the
Bugzilla and GitLab database schema definitions and I think that a
simple SQL migration of projects/bugs/comments/attachments may be
doable, if we don't mind screwing up text formatting a bit. :)

(By the way, huge kudos to the people pushing for this switch)
