I have previously used JIRA, but now I have joined a company which is using github-issues to track all their work.
I have proposed to move to JIRA since we are quickly growing in numbers (both developers and QA) and the github issue tracking system is starting to fall behind in our needs.
Since we work Agile. Our main concern is transitioning from our current github issues system to JIRA without loosing track of anything.
Right now we have different github repos for different projects and we *try* to keep all issues consolidated in their own 'issues' repo. When needed we simply make a reference to the code in another project. Some smaller projects use their integrated github issue tracking.
Is there any best practices manuals or whitepapers on how to make this transition?
I am aware of the plugins to integrate github and JIRA, the question is not about linking existing JIRA issues but about moving all the issues info we currently have in github to JIRA *and* then link those issues to their respective projects/code when needed.
We have a plugin that does just this:
It will import your issues from GitHub into JIRA. Let me know if you have any questions.

I haven't experienced this before, but there was few people who mentioned they managed to do this by building up their own scripts to export issues from GitHub to CSV files to be imported to JIRA using the CSV importer:
Maybe others in this forum have better ways.
All the best
