    3641Currently, the following data is imported from Bugzilla:
     42
    3743  * bugs
    3844  * bug activity (field changes)

    4248The script provides a number of features to ease the conversion, such as:
    43   * PRODUCT_KEYWORDS: Trac has no concept of products, so the script provides the ability to attach a ticket keyword instead.
    44   * IGNORE_COMMENTS: Don't import Bugzilla comments that match a certain regexp.
    45   * STATUS_KEYWORDS: Attach ticket keywords for the Bugzilla statuses not available in Trac. By default, the 'VERIFIED' and 'RELEASED' Bugzilla statuses are translated into Trac keywords.

     50  * PRODUCT_KEYWORDS:  Trac doesn't have the concept of products, so the script provides the ability to attach a ticket keyword instead.
     51
     52  * IGNORE_COMMENTS:  Don't import Bugzilla comments that match a certain regexp.

    56 The adequate milestone for valid bugzilla2trac issue is usually ''Not applicable'', which means that fixes to the contributed script are not planned for a particular Trac release, but can happen anytime.

    88 Since Trac uses a SQL database to store the data, you can also custom-import from other systems by examining the database tables. Just go into [http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite.html sqlite] command line to look at the tables and import them from your application.

    9092=== Comma delimited file - CSV ===
    91 See [trac:attachment:csv2trac.2.py:wiki:TracSynchronize csv2trac.2.py] for details. This approach is particularly useful if you need to enter a large number of tickets by hand. Note that the ticket type type field, (task etc...) is also needed for this script to work with more recent Trac releases.
    92 Comments on script: The script has an error on line 168: 'Ticket' needs to be 'ticket'. Also, the listed values for severity and priority are swapped.
