Help with Launchpad Bug Import Script
I and my fellow Launchpad bugs hackers have always helped people migrate to Launchpad by doing bug imports for people running other bug trackers. This has increasingly taken more and more of our time, and we've gotten worse at doing it in a timely manner for people. This is mostly because we really want to get fixes and improvements to the bug tracker itself landed. And really there's no need for us to do all this. Anyone can import their bugs into Launchpad using a Launchpad API script. So here's where I come to you, dear reader, asking for help....
Does anyone have an existing API script to import bugs into Launchpad they would be willing to open source? Or would anyone be willing to take our existing Launchpad import script and convert it to use the API? Ping me in the comments on this blog or via email if you're interested. Or catch me on IRC on the Freenode network (nick is deryck).
For those who might be interested in converting the current script, take a look at the existing Launchpad bug import script. Note that this script assumes you've created an import file in Launchpad's bug import format.
