I'll work on a page with actual documentation, etc. I just didn't want to
waste time unless people were actually interested :)

I have added a link from our Links page to your website and to the script,
you can see it at:
I didn't know how to link to the documentation of the script, if I link to
the day, then future announcements will not be shown, if I link to your
website, then the bugzilla2mantis may be in the archives. I think it would
be better if there is a way eg: http://www.crisdaniluk.com/bugzilla2mantis
that always has the latest documentation and downloads.
Let us know if there is something we can do to make such migrations easier.

Subject: [Mantisbt-dev] bugzilla migration
I've had to do a couple of migrations from bugzilla to mantis over the last
few months, so the most recent time I finally sat down and wrote a script to
do it. At this point, I have support for Bugzilla 2.16 and 2.18 and am
migrating most everything that has a match in Mantis, except for
attachments. If anyone is interested, you can download it at
http://crisdaniluk.com/bugzilla2mantis/bugzilla2mantis.pl (and see a more in
depth description at http://crisdaniluk.com).
If anyone is interested, you are more than welcome to add it as a part of
the Mantis distribution or give a direct download link to it. I have found
that most projects start off blindly using Bugzilla because they still think
its all that is out there. I have also found that the single worst thing
about Mantis is that its far too easy to convince PMs and QAs to convert to
Mantis after they see how much more intuitive and powerful it is ("GREAT!
Let's do it tomorrow") :)
I'm planning on adding some merge support (to merge all of a bugzilla's
projects into an existing Mantis repository), attachment support (blob2blob
and blob2file), etc. If anyone has any ideas, bad experiences, etc, let me
