Re: [GitLab] IMPORTANT: Mass migration plan

It could be that's a solution, could someone check?

For context, my plan is to modify the migration tool as soon as possible to not require admin access for running it (but admin access will still be required for the actual migration) so everyone can help me with the whole thing by testing their own modules and reporting issues.

AFAIU, it is only data migration, you are not doing anything extra that
was not in the user's intention.

Cannot you disable the email notifications during the migration?

I mean, when you create a project, set the notification to 'disabled',
and enable them after the migration finishes.
