I’m experimenting a migration path from Redmine to GitHub. This is a brief list:
The following link gives an idea of the final result of the migration of currently open issues:
Search filters are very powerful. We could save some searches on the wiki, or on the main web site. For instance: all open bugs. I’d like to migrate also other pages from the Redmine wiki, such as Releases.
The GitHub API does not allow to set the issue/comment author. So I specified the author as a mention. For instance, compare https://github.com/NethServer/testdev1/issues/125 to http://dev.nethserver.org/issues/1612. Of course, if we like it, we can discuss any possible enhancements and limitations of the migration process.
In the end, the migrated issues are also visible (and modifiable) from a nice dashboard provided by waffle.io. This is the link: https://waffle.io/NethServer/testdev1
I invited some people (@stephdl, @Ctek, @dz00te, @Nas, @SystemEd-Jacob ) to join the https://github.com/orgs/NethServer/teams/issuesteam and make some experiments.
Please share your thoughts!
