Hi Alex,

I understand your point but hopefully JIRA is pretty well built and manages to keep references

Have a look a recent issue a user created in a wrong JIRA project, DIRSERVER-1630.
It has been created in the DIRSERVER project but I moved it later to DIRAPI, since the issue
was related to the LDAP API instead.
During the move of the issue JIRA gave a new ID to the issue in the DIRAPI project, DIRAPI-47.
The old ID is still valid and the JIRA link
now redirects to the new issue:
Lastly, in the Activity section of the issue ('All' sub-section selected), the move has been
registered with both origin and destination values (project, version).

So, as you see, I'm not really sure we're going to loose anything in the migration...

The only thing we'd probably want to do is to create new versions in the DIRAPI project matching
all versions of the DIRSHARED project.
Maybe with a prefix, to avoid any misunderstanding.
0.9.19 in the DIRSHARED project would then become shared-0.9.19 in the DIRAPI project.
