Re: [GitLab] IMPORTANT: Mass migration plan

Yeah, not knowing these special cases make me anxious. Could you create an issue for those you know so I can evaluate them one by one? Ideally with a way to contact their maintainers.

In general I think these projects should decide themselves where they want to live, and move either to one place or the other altogether.

Not sure, I think impersonating is still something some people don't agree with.

That was my desire too, but the agreement seems to be on the opposite and have all the projects even for historical reasons. We could have a subgroup for those though.

The work load for migrating git repositories is not an issue, on the other hand migrating bugs is a big work load.

Congratulations on that achievement.

What will happen to non-GNOME/third party products that we have on
Bugzilla? The example that comes to mind is Doxygen as it’s quite
visible (in the top 10 when looking at weekly reports). They use
Bugzilla but not For this specific case, they could
move their issues to Github where their repository already is

There are probably other similar cases, I seem to remember some
projects using Launchpad for code but our Bugzilla for bug reports.

In any case those probably shouldn’t be moved to the GNOME group on
Gitlab, right?

Any chance of getting fixed before then?
It was supposedly blocked because you thought people would be against
the script impersonating them, but it turned out not to be an issue so
I guess nothing is blocking it anymore. That would vastly improve
legibility and usefulness of migrating issues.

Can we make a pass of archiving before that? Several repos haven’t had
any activity at all (not even translations) for 2, 3, … up to
8 years. There’s not much sense migrating those. A cleanup would
reduce the work load.
