We’ve written a small and, for the time being, rather simple, tool that helps GitHub project maintainers migrate their GitHub issues to Radicle issues.
The project is available at here and is already functional and covers some very basic needs for when we’ll want to migrate our own issues to Radicle (we currently use GitHub Issues as our issue tracker on VS Code extension and Jetbrains IDE plugin ).
This grant proposal can fund some robustness improvements, so that the tool will be made more reliable and reusable by others, as well as some proposed feature additions, on top of the existing functionality.

|1.||Enrich issues with GitHub Issue Events information||A lot of information about a GitHub issue is captured as an Issue Event. We will extend the tooling so we can extract these events into the Radicle Issues we create.
||Similar to GitHub Issue Events above, we want to extract information about which
|3.||Improve formatting of all GitHub metadata||Various markdown formatting improvements, addition of links to original GitHub issues, resulting to less manual work for the maintainers post-migration.|
|4.||Support incremental migrations||Currently, each run with the tool will re-create all GitHub issues as new Radicle Issues, leading to duplicate issues in the Radicle project. With support for incremental migrations, it would be possible to re-run the migration tool (e.g. on a schedule) and have it create only the newest issues that haven’t already been created.|
|5.||Flexibility around import options||Different GitHub projects will have different subsets of issues they want to migrate to Radicle. Some may want to only migrate issues with a specific label, from a specific author, or in some specific status (e.g. only open issues). We will provide some additional options to support filtering the issues being migrated.|
|6.||Container packaging||By packaging the application as a container, it becomes easier for to use - without the need for a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on the machine that will run the migration. Anyone with a container engine installed (e.g. docker, podman, etc.) can run it!|
* In the case where the Radicle Issue doesn’t allow storing this information in its own model, we will create a comments with this information, so the information is not lost, and we will also open a feature request for the Heartwood team to consider extending the model accordingly.
