First email DRAFT, FEEDBACK AND EDITS WELCOME
- Join Wikimedia Phabricator for a smooth Bugzilla migration **
Dear Wikimedia Bugzilla user,
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org will replace Bugzilla soon. We have released a preview with a sample of several thousands of Bugzilla reports automatically migrated. Your feedback is welcome.
If you have not created an account in Wikimedia Phabricator yet, please follow these steps now:
Create your Phabricator account at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/auth/start/ by clicking the "Login or Register - MediaWiki" button below the LDAP registration form. A dialog will be displayed saying "phabricator-production would like to have basic access on your behalf on all projects of this site." After clicking "Allow" you will see a "Phabricator Registration" dialog asking you to define a username in Phabricator, an email address, and a name (which does not have to be your real name).
Afterwards, add the email address(es) that you have used in Bugzilla in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/settings/panel/email/
That's it! Your Bugzilla activity will be connected to your Phabricator username as soon as the migration from Bugzilla is completed.
If you register an account after the Wikimedia Phabricator launch, you will still be able to claim your Bugzilla activity. However it will take us longer to connect your new username with your migrated data.

Second email DRAFT, FEEDBACK AND EDITS WELCOME
- Bugzilla migration starting on Friday 21 Nov - Join Wikimedia Phabricator now **
Dear Wikimedia Bugzilla user,
We plan to archive Bugzilla and migrate its data to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org starting on Friday, 21 November at 00:30 UTC. If you haven't created your Wikimedia Phabricator account with the email address(es) you have used in Bugzilla, we recommend you to do it now.
After the migration, Bugzilla will still be available for a while in read-only mode at http://old-bugzilla.wikimedia.org.IMPORTANT: Some Bugzilla data will not be migrated, like votes. If you want to receive notifications about bugs you voted, you will need to subscribe to them manually after the migration.
