Importing issues

(email address & headers removed by mods)


I’m experimenting with issue migration from trac to github, for the scummvm project.

I found several tools, some of them use the “new import API”. I couldn’t find any official announcement or docs for this API.

I have a few questions:

  1. Is it possible to assign issue ids? The project is on github for long, and it had nearly 3000 pull requests so far. I want to have a simple mapping for issue numbers, so I considered assigning them 10000+id. This way it will be easy to map issue references, and possibly use redirection from the old server in the future.

  2. Is it possible to fake the authors of issues/comments? The trac instance uses Github for authentication (not sure since when), so most users are supposed to be identical.

Thank you.
