[llvm-dev] [cfe-dev] RFC: Switching from Bugzilla to Github Issues [UPDATED]

210 issues have been filed on github so far. That's negligible compared to
the total number we have, so a minor additional effort for those seems
acceptable if we can't actually clean them out and reuse the numbers.

So suppose we start with bugzilla issue #211 and migrate the issues to
github one at a time, in order. That would preserve the existing bug
numbering and all existing bugs, other than those first 210. For those 210,
I'd suggest we file new issues on github, and add comments to github issue
1-210 indicating they've been migrated and the new issue number. (I'd be
inclined to delete as much contents from those issues as possible and
retain only the redirect to the new number.)

Would that work?
