Yes, sadly enough :-(

As I have explained in my previous mail to torque-dev, I would also have
liked to stay with scarab, but the circumstances are not favourable.
Regarding the lost spotlight, the only projects which use scarab now are
jakarta jcs and torque, so the spotlight was not that large :-)

Thanks a lot for for your offer of assistance; I really appreciate it. I'll
also read the page you mentioned. I'm not sure whether an automatic
migration is useful, a manual migration might be an opportunity to clear
out the issue tracker. There are lots of open issues around which are more
than two years old, probably most of them are closed in the meantime ore
not applicable any more.

I'll always keep Scarab in my mind as an issue tracker; if I have the
opportunity to choose one from scratch anywhere, I'll certainly give it a
try !
