Good evening,
as most of you probably already know, VLC will soon migrate its Trac bug
tracker to GitLab.

To make the migrations as smooth as possible, please make sure that the
email address associated with your Trac account is associated with your
GitLab account.

In case you are not sure which email is associated with your Trac
account, you can check at https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/prefs

You do not need to have your Trac email associated as primary GitLab
email, it just has to be associated at all. To check if that is the
case, login to your GitLab account and then go to:

If you haven't created a GitLab account already, we will try to create
one for you with your Trac username and email on GitLab during the

ATTENTION: If you do not have your Trac email associated with your
GitLab account, a duplicate account might be created or the
tickets/comments will be associated with the migration bot account.
This can NOT be cleaned up afterwards, it's not possible to merge
two accounts!

If you have any questions about the migration, feel free to reply
here or message me privately, in case it is a question specifically
about your account.
