Just a quick lesson from matplotlib's migration of sourceforge bugs to
github issues. Darren Dale did an excellent job with only a few hitches.
The key one is that *every* issue migrated spawns a new email. This got old
very fast. Second, because Darren did the migration, he became author for
every single issue. He then got every single status change of every issue
that we triaged the following few weeks.

 We don't hear much from Darren these days... I suspect the men in the
white coats took him away...
