- Turn on API access in Redmine under Administration → Settings → Authentication → Enable REST web service
- Back up your Things DB
cp ~/Library/Application Support/Cultured Code/Things/database.xml ~/Library/Application Support/Cultured Code/Things/database-backup.xml

Current State and Gotchas
Right now it’s very basic. This is just the beginning. This is by no means a complete project yet. I just got tired of waiting. The things todo class does not allow you to set the ID of the todo, so to ensure no duplicates are created the applescript uses a tag on the todo element based on the ID from redmine.
This would be a very cool tool to have. Things.app (CulturedCode.com) is the best ToDo list out there and having a real solution would be wonderful!
