Despite being marked for discontinuation on June 14th, 2013, the gdata API for Issues is still functional. Since the gdata library should be easy to implement, it is worth implementing an importer using it while it still works, even if we have to replace it.
The API documentation indicates that authentication is required, but as there is no support for non-public issues and we're doing only reads, it would be good if we can avoid asking for a username / password. (The feed itself doesn't require authentication.) Another example using the API can be found here.
