There is just the one SourceForge bug tracker for all SF projects, so
that's correct. Have a look at our page for the SF tracker:


You'll see that a lot of projects are using the SF tracker, so you're
in good company. On <https://launchpad.net/nunit-2.5/+edit>, set "Bugs
are tracked:" to "In a registered bug tracker: SourceForge.net
Tracker" and everything else should just work.

Then, when people go to file bugs against nunit-2.5 in Launchpad they
should be directed to SourceForge, and if someone tries to say that a
bug also affects nunit-2.5 they'll be asked for the URL of the bug in
SF. The URL is optional and can be specified later; after all, the bug
may not have been filed in SourceForge yet.

I think that shouldn't matter at all.
