SF said that there is one so we should be able to use the old numbers in
We provide a number of redirects and ways to find the old tickets.
1. the old URL for the ticket is redirected to the new one
2. using the old ID in the new ticket URL structure will redirect to the
new ticket as well.
2.the old ID is indexed in search, so searching for the old ID will
return the new location.
A caveat for 2 however is that this needs to be done in the tickets
instance that contains that ticket (ie., a search for "bug" ticket won't
be found if you're searching "feature-requests").
