Disable submission of new bugs without hiding old ones

Asked by Max Gaukler on 2021-02-13

The Inkscape project https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/ has moved the bug database to GitLab.org. Old bugs are still kept in Launchpad until they are triaged and moved over to GitLab. Is there any way to disable submission of new bugs on Launchpad without making the bug list completely disappear?

Hi Max,

Unfortunately there is not a direct option available to leave the bug tracking working as your are expecting (submission closed but the list still available).

As a workaround, you could disable bug tracking on Launchpad and retrieve the bug list using the Launchpad API. The links for the bugs obtained through that method should still be visible even if bug tracking has been disabled.

A code snippet for it would be something like:

$ lp-shell production devel
>>> for task in lp.projects['inkscape'].searchTasks():
... print(task.bug.id, task.bug.title)

Hope that helps.
