    4137Currently, the following data is imported from Bugzilla:
    42 
    43   * bugs
    44   * bug activity (field changes)
    45   * bug attachments
    46   * user names and passwords (put into a htpasswd file)
     38 * bugs
     39 * bug activity (field changes)
     40 * bug attachments
     41 * user names and passwords (put into a htpasswd file)
    4742
    4843The script provides a number of features to ease the conversion, such as:
    49 
    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.
    53 
    54   * 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.
     44 * PRODUCT_KEYWORDS: Trac has no concept of products, so the script provides the ability to attach a ticket keyword instead.
     45 * IGNORE_COMMENTS: Don't import Bugzilla comments that match a certain regexp.
     46 * 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.

    60  [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/JiraToTracIntegration JiraToTracIntegration] :: provides tools to import Atlassian Jira backup files into Trac. The plug-in consists of a Python 3.1 commandline tool that:
    61    - Parses the Jira backup XML file
    62    - Sends the imported Jira data and attachments to Trac using the [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/XmlRpcPlugin XmlRpcPlugin]
    63    - Generates a htpasswd file containing the imported Jira users and their SHA-512 base64 encoded passwords
     56The 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.

    90 Since trac uses a SQL database to store the data, you can 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 into them from your application.

    92 === Comma delimited file - CSV ===
    93 See [trac:attachment:csv2trac.2.py:wiki:TracSynchronize csv2trac.2.py] for details.  This approach is particularly useful if one needs 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)
    94 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.
