Just a quick update, I've changed the URL for the script to something
shorter, with a nicer name: (gimt ==
gNewSense Issue Migration Tool).

Due to being unable to contact Karl, and following advice from Sam, I
have begun work on the mini-project. First commit/push has been made,
although the script isn't functional yet, I hope to have something
workable by the end of today.
