All old JIRA issues were imported into the new repo at:
Most metadata was imported, with some exceptions, e.g. author information was preserved only as comments and votes did not transfer.
https://issues.scala-lang.org will remain online as an archive.
We wanted to preserve both existing issue numbers and existing PR numbers, and this was impossible in a single repo since the numbers overlap, hence the separate repo. GitHub will crosslink properly if you write e.g.
The repo name was chosen to emphasize that we are using issues to track problems, not feature requests. Please use Discourse and the SIP and SPP processes for those.
Thank you, Adriaan Moors, for tackling this! (How'd he do it? see https://github.com/adriaanm/bbj)
Community help is needed:
- updating links and documentation ecosystem-wide
- triaging and labeling tickets, closing duplicates, closing already-fixed tickets, etc
- fixing all of the bugs; good starter tickets are labeled "quickfix"
