Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Moving JIRA issues to Github
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2017 23:07:49 GMT
If people post their issue at the wrong repo (which of course can and
will happen from time to time), there is a way to move them over with
minimal loss of information:

This works for issues where several people replied already in the
exact same way:

As the original poster of the issue and each reply is @-mentioned they
are notified about the "new" issue and can continue participating.
Replying users also can just include the @username in their new
replies again to make sure people get notified.
