Any updates on the Bug database? An ETA?

The database *is now usable*, because we have learned that if and when the import of the old bugs is done, the import will *add* old bugs to the new bugs, not overwrite.

I am currently of the (weak) opinion that the cost to benefit ratio of importing the old bugs is now in favor of not importing the old bugs. I have invested a good bit of time in IRC pleading with folks to get it done, fine tuning import export prep utilities, only to continually be met with excuse after excuse. So I have given up.

If somebody else wants to baby sit it, they are welcome. Otherwise if it happens it happens, I don't have any more energy for it.

The old bugs are in <src>/Documentation/kicad_export.xml.bz2 and on my website in a different form waiting for Deryk to do what he has said he would do.

I am also in the opinion that the cost to import a list of bugs that are in many cases outdated is too high. many recent reported bugs were fixed, and many bugs in this list are just noise.

And thanks for the lot of time you spent to manage the Launchpad transfert.
