Runa, in practice you are the Language team member coordinating the migration. Let me assign this task to you.

How is you first sprint with Phabricator going? Have you decided on the next steps?

Hi @Qgil, we are already on the 2nd sprint and about to start the 3rd sprint on phabricator tomorrow. Till now, it has been very convenient to create tasks. An important benefit we found is the ease of interactions with other teams because we are all using a common tool. There are some aspects of mingle that we currently miss, like columns based on status and several other customizable views (including shared ones). We are keeping notes and will add them to the phabricator project as enhancement requests.

We plan to look at the mingle migration script during the slow development cycle in the coming week and move all the appropriate cards into phabricator by early January. Thanks.

@Arrbee, are you still planning to migrate your Mingle cards? I guess by now you are getting more used to clone manually whatever new tasks are needed?

@Qgil, we are done. We finished on Friday night. I just have to do a walkthrough of the new tickets that were created.

@Arrbee: Please feel free to close this ticket as resolved once entirely done.
