No, before the final migration. I was unclear indeed!

Heard and noted. Would you like to elaborate a tiny bit wrt. to why
you think it'll make a difference for you? It will help me triage &
classify your feedback.

I believe it's exactly the same problem for comments: if we can
impersonate users for issue creation, then we can also impersonate
them for notes creation. If we can't do the former, then we can't do
the later.

Note that in the worst case, if we can't impersonate folks, IMO we
should do the migration using a special purpose migration bot user,
and definitely *not* as mine :)
