    Migrating from Redmine to Bitbucket

    17th October 2013

    In one of the previous posts I’ve mentioned that BitBucket is ├╝ber-cool :)

    Redmine is also really cool, and is actually more feature-reach than what BitBucket has to offer, but maintaining it needs just a tiny bit more time and attention than I’m willing to spend these days. So, migration it is!

    Redmine has issue 3647 titled “Data import/export system”; it is not resolved, but has a number of links to other resources. Like the redmine exporter at hostedredmine.com, which provides free hosted redmine service. Redmine itself has REST API, though I have no idea if it allows exporting all the data I may need. There’s also an XLS export plugin, but it has to be installed first, and I’m too lazy :) There’s also TaskAdapter, but they do not support BitBucket (yet?).

    For the complete backup, I think of using the pure-ruby redmine project data export script. To migrate issues only, I’ll consider the redmine2bitbucket script.

    P.S. Not implying anything (yet?), but my previous migration was from Trac to Redmine… At that time, Trac seemed to have less features than I wanted. And now I’m migrating back to “less features”, but with a benefit of no support required from me.
