Is there any way we can prioritize getting the successor to LP

It doesn't seem like Canonical is going to put the resources behind
fixing it (especially with recent cutbacks they've made). I don't
want us to move to something less useful prematurely, but at the same
time, LP is much less useful IMHO given how blueprints have been
destroyed and we have false reports filling mailboxes (even if
temporary, it's an inconvenience).
To a degree, moving to Gitlab issues would allow us a bit of a fresh
slate. But the process of moving would need to be done very carefully.
Firstly I'd recommend backing everything up from launchpad.
Then switching launchpad bugs tracker to "We manage our bugs somewhere
else" this is so users are redirected correctly to our new issue
tracker from old links.
With the old bugs (lots and lots and lots of them) we'd need to host
them somewhere for archiving. Given my experience with getting things
into gitlab, I don't really think it's useful to have them migrated.
(But I'm willing to be convinced!)
