Comments?

This looks useful.

The main annoyance I see is that some font sizes are abnormally large. For example, for bug BZ#2849 (https://gitlab.com/rouault/test-libtiff-issues/issues/156) the text of the ASAN output (starting with "TIFFReadDirectoryCheckOrder:") looks like it uses the same large and bold font size as the issue

the over-large font size seems to be selected in a haphazard manner or maybe it is just not a good translation from an existing formatting.

This looks like the original Bugzilla content is being rendered as Markdown.  It could be avoided by wrapping the content with "```" lines to make it all verbatim text.  That's probably the easiest course of action to make it all look sane without spending hours messing around the the Markdown syntax for each ticket.

The other thing I noticed was the bot name was "TIFF Bugzilla to gilab issues bot".  Should probably be "GitLab Issues" rather than "gilab issues".

Overall, the concept and initial test import look really great. Clearly, there's some small amount of loss on conversion, but the main point is to get the bulk of the content moved over, and it looks like it's doing a good job of that.  Other than the minor cosmetic issues, this is a fantastic effort.  Thanks Even!

Kind regards,
