Hi,

What I'd recommend is first finding out what usernames will be different
between the two and then, before users with new usernames end up using the
system, just go and modify the usernames of the registered users to be the
new usernames. This can be done in the Database browser in the admin UI, or
by modifying the auth_user table in MySQL (though I'd back up the database
first).

If redundant users have already been created, you'll need to find every
object in the database referencing the new user and switch them to the old.
This is more complicated, but a way you can sort of find this out is to
begin a deletion of the user in the Database browser, but don't confirm
deletion. It'll show you everything it would delete, with handy links for
viewing those. You could then change those from there. Just be careful not
to confirm!

Review Board 3.0 will provide the ability to reassign ownership of review
requests.

Christian
