Why did you add a bunch of space to that line?


** [tickets:#6464] Create tracker importer for Google Code using CSV and scraping**

**Status:** code-review
**Labels:** import google-code 
**Created:** Mon Jul 15, 2013 05:21 PM UTC by Cory Johns

Since the Google Data API for Issues is deprecated and was scheduled to be shut down already
(June 14th, 2013), we'll need to create an implementation using the CSV list and scraping
to ensure that the Google Code importer continues to work.

The importer should follow the framework discussed on the [mailing list](
and integrate with the project importer from [#6456].

        The list of tickets and their metadata can be retrieved via the CSV export list, e.g., but the ticket body and comments will need to
be scraped from the web interface.  The description and comments can be retrieved from, e.g., by iterating over the items with `id="hc\d+"`
or `class="issuedescription|issuecomment"`.

The description and comments on issues don't support wiki syntax or HTML, so we can just convert
them to text.  User mapping will have the same issues, so whatever we end up doing in [#6461]
will apply here.
