Good question.

There are two ways we can do this:

   1. Ask for a list of the new bug numbers, and do some apache mod_redirect
   magic to convert them to the new method.
   2. During the import, give each imported bug an alias, like 'sl1234'
   which identify their numbers on the old bug tracker.  Then we just have to
   redirect from http://dev.sugarlabs.org/bugs/1234 to
   https://launchpad.net/bugs/sl1234, and LP will handle the rest.

I'll have to ask for confirmation on whether option 2 can be automagically
done during the import We'd have to implement the redirect to ("
launchpad.net/bugs/sl" + BUG_NUMBER) ourselves, but that's trivial.

Worst case, we can do 1. I'll follow up and see what's doable and report
back to the list.
