2019.09.28 16:54 "[Tiff] Switch from bugzilla to gitlab issues ?", by Even Rouault
I think it is time to give up with bugzilla.maptools.org. I think it cannot accept new users as the mail server has been turned down (because of spams). I've tried to investigate 2 projects to migrate bugzilla issues to gitlab issues, https://pypi.org/project/bugzilla2gitlab and https://gitlab.gnome.org/federico/bugzilla-to-gitlab-migrator, but failed with both. The first one seems to require administrator rights on the gitlab instance which isn't possible on gitlab.com and doesn't seem to handle attachments, and the second one (after editing hard coded URLs for gnome) fails when querying bugzilla, probably because the instance on maptools is too old. I don't have time/energy to investigate more on that.
So I suggest the following simple plan:
- turn off creation of new tickets for libtiff component on bugzilla.maptools.org. I've managed to get rights to do that.
- enable gitlab issues on gitlab.com/libtiff/libtiff
- update the project page explaining the situation
So no migration of existing issues, but let the bugzilla instance die off.
Any opposition to this?
