 I think you should shut it down to prevent any gaps in the bug
 reporting and to save yourself some work.

Done. Just before doing that I did another snapshot and put it into the source repo under Documentation/kicad_export.xml

 Can you put a link on the sourceforge bug tracker to point to the
 launchpad bug tacker?

No, I think the tracker tab is gone entirely now, and with it the webpage.

 If you decide to shut it down, I'll change the bug reporting link on
 the Kicad wiki to point to the Launchpad bug tracker.

Thanks for that.

 I probably should also add a note to the developers page that the
 Kicad development resources are now hosted at launchpad.  The only
 question I have is how does launchpad handle feature requests.  I
 don't see any where in launchpad to track feature requests.  Do
 sourceforge feature requests map to blueprints (seems like overkill)
 or bug reports on launchpad?

These are good questions, and they need to be answered almost within the hour. The launchpad guy is standing by ready to import a file named output.xml, which is extracted from kicad_export.xml, but the darn files are so big that I cannot tell if the converting tool (kicad_export.xml to output.xml) is including the feature requests or only the bugs. If we don't get a handle on this soon, the issue will be answered for us. I also have some reluctance to even keep old *closed* bug reports. What do you think?

Here is the conversion program I used:


Does this program keep "Feature Requests" in the output or not?

Do we want them there, in the bug database?
