I could take a crack at it, although if you're going to do that, why not move the issue tracking to Github as well and take advantage of the integration?

Because we're pretty entrenched with Bugzilla.

Bugzilla is *much* nicer.

Github's issue tracking, while slick, is still fairly primitive. It doesn't support attachments, for instance. --f46d04083875e516db04b46cc773 Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable On Mon, Dec 19, 2011 at 12:13 AM, Andrew Wiley <span dir=3D"ltr">&lt;<a hre= f=3D"mailto:wiley.andrew.j gmail.com">wiley.andrew.j gmail.com</a>&gt;</spa= n> wrote:<br><div class=3D"gmail_quote"><blockquote class=3D"gmail_quote" s= tyle=3D"margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"> <div class=3D"HOEnZb"><div class=3D"h5">On Sun, Dec 18, 2011 at 11:00 PM, W= alter Bright<br> &lt;<a href=3D"mailto:newshound2 digitalmars.com">newshound2 digitalmars.co= m</a>&gt; wrote:<br> &gt; I&#39;m looking for volunteers to convert all the remaining patches in= Bugzilla<br> &gt; to pull requests.<br> <br> </div></div>I could take a crack at it, although if you&#39;re going to do = that, why<br> not move the issue tracking to Github as well and take advantage of<br> the integration?<br> </blockquote></div><br><div>Github&#39;s issue tracking, while slick, is st= ill fairly=A0primitive. =A0It doesn&#39;t support attachments, for instance= .</div> --f46d04083875e516db04b46cc773--

That kills it right there.

The advantages (automatic links*, and closing issues with commit messages) aren't that great compared to the disadvantages (minimalistic featureset, splitting bug reports between two sites, issue number collisions and other migration woes). *: I wrote a UserScript to make Bugzilla issue numbers clickable on GitHub: http://dump.thecybershadow.net/b7d2e2759116df7a83ee2f4678856a1e/dbuglinks.user.js

Github has some ability to integrate with external bugzilla's too. Adding notes to bugs when they're mentioned in pull requests. Possibly even closing them when pull requests are closed. It's been a while since I read about it and I haven't yet played with it myself. I need to upgrade to a newer version of bugzilla first. I've had it on my low priority todo list for a while. Does github's bug tracker have an export data feature? ie, the ability to make backups and/or move the data to another system? For the git repository itself it's trivial and inherent in git itself. I'm reluctant to house project critical data in a system that we don't have good control over. Websites come and go and we need to remain viable belong their lifespans. Last time I looked I didn't see an import feature either. We've got TONS of open bugs already and there's no way I want to split our database across multiple systems. My 2 cents, Brad

I've been planning on converting all of mine, but I haven't had bandwidth to do so this fall.
