[Gimp-developer] Git and Bugzilla migration to gitlab.gnome.org - action items and important hints

Hi all,

GNOME is migrating all projects to https://gitlab.gnome.org

This GitLab instance is replacing both the current GNOME Git repository
and GNOME Bugzilla.

On 2018-05-23 (tomorrow/today, depending on time zone), GIMP and its
bugs will be migrated.

This has some effects and requires some action:

1. HINT: Lots and lots of Bugzilla notification mails

Everyone who is receiving Bugzilla mails for comments and status changes
of GIMP bugs will receive about 1400 mails. If you do not want this,
disable mail on your Bugzilla preferences or unwatch the bugs gimp org
user there temporarily:


Bugzilla will stay around for bug research, but no bug tracking will
happen there for migrated projects anymore.

GitLab uses the term "Issues" instead of "Bugs". Once we're migrated
we'll start fine-tuning the project settings and provide an update mail
about any important changes.

2. ACTION ITEM: gitlab.gnome.org accounts

Make sure you can log in to GNOME GitLab:

Everyone who has Git commit access has a GNOME LDAP account and can use
it to log in there - but you have most likely forgotten your password.
Follow the instructions on
https://wiki.gnome.org/AccountsTeam/RetrieveYourGNOMEAccountPassword to
get a temporary one and use the GNOME Account system to set a new password.

Everyone else should sign up for a standard account - using a Google,
GitHub or GitLab account for authenticating is possible.

And do not worry: if anything goes wrong, the admins can help you.

Regarding actual git usage, anonymous Fetch URLs continue to work, but
will eventually have to be changed, Push URLs will have to be changed
immediately. More about this when we have been migrated and tried this
