+1 for redmine.

- OsmocomBB never used tickets AFAIK.
- OsmocomGMR definitely never used them
- OsmocomSDR ... don't think it's worth importing.
- Security ... yeah maybe, although not really sure anyone is really using this.

script ?

The page names should be the same, so it should pretty much be just a
few redirects per project with regexp to redirect properly.
Shouldn't be too hard once we settled for a URL scheme.

Any reason not to go for just as a base ?  We have
nothing really in the front page and we could just let redmine handle
it too.

Then just  looks good to
me if doable.
