Hi Nathan,

Checkout the new FAQ, it is still work in progress:

http://bugs.mantisbt.org/core/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=mantisbt:4350

 

You can use “Migration from Custom Bugtrackers” approach or develop a script that imports data from ElementTool to Mantis.  Similar to what is available for Bugzilla, GNATs, and TaskVision.
