Does someone have experience with importing projects into a self-hosted gitlab instance?

The import from github actually revreated issue comments (albeit with just a single user) the import just flattened the whole discussion into the issue description, which is not optimal.

I mean I guess it makes more sense for their business-case to polish the github importer but still... why is the import from your own project worse?!

Let's maybe try the project exporter instead, maybe that one works differently for some reason.

@Bubu I guess you were using this process, right?

If yes, then I'm not aware of a better method.

@sheogorath Heh, you can see already form the docs that about 10 times more effort went into the github -> gitlab import than the -> gitlab importer :)

@Bubu So how did you try it? There are two way to import gitlab projects. First is by using exports from instance A and import on instance B and there is also a quick import using oauth from

@Bubu And that ended up in a mess, right? That's rather annoying, may try to export way if you don't have too many repositories.

@sheogorath Right, the export function is much better. 👍

Why though...?!
