Right.  So importing old bug reports in a sensible manner is pretty much
impossible with such a setup.  Gitlab would have to grow some
denormalisation in its database for us to be able to use it.

We could ask everybody here to create an account. Maybe even send out such requests personally for people who had been active in the past. And then, when doing the import, try to assign comments to existing accounts going by email.

The rest would probably have to be imported as created by some utility user (to use an example from a popular Russian online community, we could call it UFO), and the authors would not get notifications for any new replies (unless notified by email personally as well).
