bugs.python.org finally in production!

Published: 2007-08-25 22:27 UTC. Tags: open source software

For over a year, I've been working on replacing the bug tracker used by the python project. Earlier, they used the horrible bug tracker provided by sourceforge. Now, since last thursday, they are using their own tracker based on roundup.

Hooray! I'm very happy we're finally there!

The new tracker is at http://bugs.python.org

Are your tools used to migrate from sourceforge to roundup available anywhere? I'm sure a number of other projects could utilize them (the Jython project immediately comes to mind)

How did you handle the fact that there weren't just sourceforge tickets, but also patches under their own category (and possibly feature requests if python's sourceforge project originally had those too)?

The migration tools are available in python's svn repository, more specifically at http://svn.python.org/projects/tracker/importer/. I'll add a README some time in the near future to give some hints on how to use it.

Both patches and feature requests were handled and added as issues in the new tracker. In the backup from sourceforge, all three trackers had their data included.

I wrote a README on the tracker tools. See http://svn.python.org/projects/tracker/importer/README.rst
