I'd like to ask Marc, Patrick and Bryce to review the changes.
Thanks for taking care of this!
I've done some minor edits to simplify / clarify (among others I tried
to give a short explanation on why there are two trackers but without
getting too verbose). Feel free to cross-check and iterate!
I guess we might want to include a link to the guide on how to migrate a
bug once it's ready in the relevant line? (I think Chris was preparing one?)
As a general note I'm afraid some users were lazy and didn't check
properly for duplicates before. Having two trackers will likely not make
that any more probable. Even for everybody else it obviously involves
additional effort. As I don't see a way to "solve" this (short of nuking
or completely disregarding the old tracker), I tried at least to change
the wording a bit to explain that reporters themselves might profit from
searching for old bugs on Launchpad, too, instead of simply indicating
that we don't want them to file duplicates even if the reasons would be
obvious and the request warranted. (Actually I'm starting to realize
that for these kinds of pages it's more helpful to pick a language that
tries to explain how filing reports "properly" can be mutually
advantageous for reporters and project members alike, instead of trying
to explain from the point of view of either party).
