Another option for playing around things- I am happy to do a test migration and populate our storyboard-dev instance with your real data from lp. The last half a dozen teams we have migrated have been handled this way.
Playing around with StoryBoard ahead of time is a really good idea because it does work differently from lp. I don't think its more complicated, it just takes some getting used to. It forces a lot less on its users in terms of constructs and gives users a lot more flexibility to use it in a way that is most effective for them. For a lot of people this involves a mental re-frame of task management and organization of work but its not a herculean effort. -Kendall (diablo_rojo) On Mon, Jun 11, 2018 at 1:31 PM Doug Hellmann <d...@doughellmann.com> wrote: > Excerpts from CARVER, PAUL's message of 2018-06-11 19:53:47 +0000: > > Jeremy Stanley <fu...@yuggoth.org> wrote: > > > > >I'm just going to come out and call bullshit on this one.
