ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.

We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.

I've added documentation for upgrading ChiliProject and to Migrate From Redmine. Like I said in IRC, it looks like Redmine 1.1.1 and below are just a straight switch over to our git repo and then a db:migrate.

Redmine trunk and 1.2 will need some work since they include more database changes but they aren't yet released and we might pull in some of their code anyway.

P.S. I tested the upgrade with a Redmine 0.9, 1.0-stable, and 1.1-stable databases. My ChiliProject development database is also based on 1.0.5 and it was migrated cleanly a few weeks ago.
