Hi, it has been almost a week since we opened
for community review.
Thanks to some reviewers with excellent attention to detail, some new bugs
have been found, and some new discussions have have been held. The current
status of the preview is reflected in
The Bugzilla migration script is in "blocker freeze" now. Once we have
resolved the current blockers, we will regenerate the bugzillapreview
instance with a sample of 500 tasks in order to verify the fixes.
There have been tasks declined as well, the most remarkable of them being
"T857 Imported bugs from bugzilla should be assigned the same number as
their bugzilla ID". This would be already a very complex task to be
performed on a fresh Phabricator install, and the fact that we have now
hundreds of real tasks in http://phabricator.wikimedia.org

Tomorrow, we will start discussing possible dates for the Bugzilla and RT
migrations. While we keep working on open tasks, the next milestone is to
announce the dates of these migrations.
In the meantime, T1000 was created today, it is becoming a lot easier to

approaching each other, perhaps slower than we planned, but steadily, and
thanks to the effort of more contributors every week. With your help, we

Check the list of known issues before creating new tasks. We are leaving
at least one week for feedback, or more if there are issues that require
fixes and a second test. At the end of the review period we will be able to
commit to a Bugzilla migration date.
Thank you again to Chase, Mukunda, and Andre for opening a way that nobody
has walked before. Big Thank You also to the growing number of contributors
helping in this complex and terribly interesting migration process!
