+1 on migration.

I would bias the decision in favor of doing the migration over trying to
solve every problem and letting another year go by.

If Ivan has a working migration for Jira then +1 for that.

I think it is a mistake to get hung up on these other issues that are
trivial in my opinion.  Monospace vs proportional -- I do not believe
anyone really cares.  Just let the ascii art get messed up.  Old links not
working ... not a problem you can solve.  Just move on.

I would just migrate the data to Jira, not try to solve all these problems
and move forward.  I have seen zero evidence in the years I have been
involved in this project that anyone really cares about the issue tracker.
We go out of our way to actively discourage people from using it.  To bog
down on migration over relatively small problems would just be a waste of
time and effort.  It sounds like you already will be accomplishing a lot by
keeping issue numbers roughly the same.

Take that victory and get this done.
