For the record, GitLab looks really interesting and exciting to me as
well. If we were a new project, we could go there in a heartbeat. But we
have to consider all of the not-fun practical matters and repercussions
of migration of a large and storied existing project.

Which is precisely why migrating at all would be problematic. We can
ill-afford the labor to do it.

What are you referring to? In the case of improving Launchpad, our work
would be submitted upstream, to go live on We won't have
to move or change anything, just make the existing platform better.
Seems like the best return on effort invested to me.

Please do not make sweeping assertions like this without data.

In reality, 2774 (or 73.5%) of the bugs in the system are either
confirmed (adequate information,) being worked on, or already fixed. A
history of resolved bugs is very valuable in the case of regressions,
similar but new occurrences, and when users search for a common problem
they think is a bug.

Please provide suggestions on how we can better use Launchpad. Getting
the most out of existing tools is always a worthwhile endeavor.

I'm going to look at migrating it to Launchpad after the login
consolidation work.
