I am trying to migrate a project from BitBucket to GitHub, and would like to import all the issues (preferably keeping their issue numbers intact).

Is there some tool or service which will accomplish this?

Also fails if you have 2FA enabled. – mlissner Jul 25 '14 at 14:32
Didn't work even for public repositories – Christian Dec 15 '14 at 10:03

I just wrote a simple script in Ruby just to do that, you can check it out here:

It seems, that description of your script is very limited and I think, your code can only be used by an experienced Ruby developer. I found it very usable (the idea) and even thought about installing Ruby just for this one case. However, limited description proven me, that I'm not going to use it, as I have lack of knowledge. Any chance you can extend the description (format of .rb file, what, how and when should be run etc.) or introduce some simple wiki for that repo? – trejder Sep 21 '14 at 16:08
@trejder i just updated the documentation. it is actually as easier as that. – siong1987 Sep 22 '14 at 21:21
Thank you so much! :> – trejder Sep 23 '14 at 7:15
