Fixed again :)

Hopefully done now, e.g.

Note that there doesn't seem to be a way to turn off new issues in
a RedMine project - there are hacks via removing the ability from
the roles, but I fear that would affect the other projects still using
the RedMine server (e.g. BioPerl).

Instead we may just have to do the triage/migration and then
drop the links to the old RedMine server from the website etc.
