Upgrade Path: Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 using the Migrate API - Video Demo

It's the final week of work before Christmas and Code Drop have sponsored me to work on core for the whole week :). I've been working towards a successful end to end migration from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 and after debugging 5 core bugs, I finally have a working solution. Checkout the video!

The video shows an out the box Drupal 6 website with a bunch of fields, taxonomies and settings created. Most of the stuff comes across to Drupal 8 but there are still a few issues that need work.

Current Core Bugs

These are the core bugs that are required to get this demo working.
