Originally #7 on Github

When testing against an older backup, the table jiraissue didn't have the field issuenum . Instead, the field pkey contains the project label (e.g. TEST-1).

It's possible to then explode that to calculate the issuenum, but need to implement something that identifies whether which field we need to refer to

Given that the version of JIRA that JILS was originally written for will be going out of support soon, I'm not sure there's much sense in adding functionality to support older versions.

Might be helpful to document the changes that need to be made though, IIRC they were fairly straight forward.
