        Also see http://glassbox.com/confluence/display/GLASSBOX/SourceForge+Issue+Import+Process where some guy managed to do this.

        I would also vote for such an import tool.

        Voted for this bug. This is not only a convenience issue : a lot of OpenSource projects still rely on SourceForge for historical reasons, but are only waiting for a good opportunity to switch to a more powerful bug tracker. (and I'm not going to detail here the reasons why SourceForge tracker can not even be considered decent anymore)

        Trac has a feature to import Sourceforge tickets, and I believe that this is the only bug tracker that allows this.

        I do need this feature, true, but I seriously think that having such a tool would greatly improve JIRA's popularity.

        Hi Nicolas,

        I certainly see what you mean. Our greatest challenge is prioratising feature requests such as this, as we have a lot of feature requests (thousands) and we can only do some of them at an acceptable level of quality. We do our best to deliver as much value as we can with every JIRA release.

        At the moment this feature is not planned. For available options for importing data into JIRA please see:
        http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Migrating+from+other+issue+trackers

        It is also possible to involve an Atlassian Partner who can help you with this. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to:
        partners at atlassian dot com

        Cheers,
        Anton

        Thanks for taking the time to raise this issue.

        Due to the large volume of JIRA feature suggestions, we have to prioritise our development efforts. In part, that means concentrating on those issues that resonate the most with our users.

        I am writing this note to advise you, that we have decided to close your Suggestion as it has not gained traction on jira.atlassian.com. We believe being upfront and direct with you will assist you in your decision making rather than believing Atlassian will eventually address this issue.

        Thank you again for your suggestion and if you have any concerns or question, please don’t hesitate to email me.
        Kind Regards,
        Kerrod Williams
