Launchpad is a collection of services including bug tracking, translations and specification tracking. It is the official Ubuntu bug tracker.

Python Bugs Import

The Python bugs from Source Forge have been imported into a demonstration instance, also containing a copy of the production data:


Accounts for each bug reporter, assignee or commenter have been created using the $USERNAME@users.sourceforge.net address. People can claim the account using the password recovery page:

For people who already had launchpad accounts, the $USERNAME@users.sourceforge.net account can be merged here:

Outgoing Email Filter

To avoid spamming uninterested people, the outgoing email for the demo Launchpad instance is being filtered. We can whitelist email addresses on request.

Old Bug Numbers

Each imported SourceForge bug has a nickname assigned of the form "sfNNNN", where NNNN is the old bug number. This makes it easy to look up bugs by the old SF bug number. For example, [http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1101399&group_id=5470&atid=105470 bug 1101399] is accessible as [https://demo.launchpad.net/bugs/sf1101399]

Feature Requests

We welcome feature requests, which can be filed in Launchpad at:

Comming Soon

  • Shorter bug URLs -- the /products/ part of the URL will go away


  • ownership of python product set to python-infrastructure team
  • bug contact set to python-dev team, whose email address is set to the existing python-bugs-list@python.org (not added to the outgoing email filter though, so won't receive email).

  • SourceForge bug data imported.
