Very useful script, especially with Microsoft shutting down Codeplex. I'm using your script to migrate a project to Github.

Two problems:

  1. Apparently github has added "abuse limits". I could only import 18 issues before github hit me with a 403 error. Github "best practices" suggests waiting at least a second between submissions.
  2. Given problem 1), it is difficult to start "where I left off". I don't know enough about the github API to feel confident that Github won't create duplicate issues if I start over from the beginning.

Minor nit: your web page still talks about the "old" version of the script (e.g. 'github2', etc).

Minor nit: identifying the script as Python 2.x (not 3.x) would have be helpful.

All this aside, thank you very much for this script!

Hey @fire-eggs - do you happen to have the changes you did to get things running, even minor? Maybe you could do a pull request then I could merge it in and other CodePlexers can benefit from it if they need.

I haven't touched or used this in 3 years so I've forgotten lots about this, so any modifications even minor ones would help others I'm sure.

I'm sorry to see Codeplex go, I lurk on some of the app-projects there. Did Codeplex email everyone to nudge them off or did they only do a banner/blog announcement?

Sure, I'll try to do a pull request soon - forgive me if I don't get it right!

Embarrassed to say it took a few tries before Github would stop complaining ...
