Based off of ticket import API system, probably.

Look for existing forum data formats, i.e. any public standards.

Consider supplementing the regular forum API with a few import-specific fields

    (forge)(rc/1786)
    : rick446@legolas-vm: ~/src/forge/Allura; git qa
    Todays unlucky sucker is: Wolf
    

    To QA:

    • Generate an xml dump from an existing sfx project. I've been using Ming (https://sourceforge.net/export/xml_export2.php?group_id=289238)
    • Convert the xml dump to psuedo-forgeplucker using the project-to-plucker script in forgeclassic:

    .

    python project-to-plucker.py merciless_export.xml merciless_export.json
    
    • Log in as a 'super user' (someone with access to /nf/admin/, by default locally this is root:foo)
    • Create an api ticket with the capabilities { "import": "test" } (or {"import":"project_you_want_to_import_into"} )
    • note the api key and secret key generated
    • create an instance of the forum tool in your target project (in the example I create one with the mount point 'fora')
    • Run the import script

    .

    paster script development.ini ../scripts/allura_import.py -- merciless_export.json -p test -f fora -u http://localhost:8080 -a tck0d760b27cbf58a7a4c98 -s 54c6feb71ba42fe04e7db34fcbc415edae4db696eaff5cf06043b0dd15e059482c2a2ded7e7465dd
