Pagure Exporter is now available

Pagure Exporter is now available in the Fedora package repositories and PyPI. The Pagure Exporter tool enables the migration of a Pagure repository (including metadata and issues) to a GitLab repository. Install pagure-exporter from Fedora Linux repositories or PyPI to get started.


With most of the projects used in the Fedora Project community moving away from Pagure to the Fedora Project’s namespace on GitLab.com, Justin W. Flory proposed an initiative to the Community Platform Engineering team. The objective was to investigate and develop a self-service tool capable of helping contributors to the community migrate their project assets from Pagure to GitLab as reliably as possible, similar to the pagure-importer tool from Trac in 2015.

After investigation and development of a prototype by ARC investigators, Michal Konecny and Akashdeep Dhar as well as a backlog refinement process, the project was scoped for implementation as a part of the Fedora Infrastructure and Release Engineering work for Q4 2023 by the team’s then-product owner, Aoife Moloney.

After around a month and a half of designing, developing and testing by Akashdeep Dhar, the Pagure Exporter tool is now published for use in Fedora Linux repositories and PyPI.
