    8185
    82 The [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/JiraToTracIntegration Jira2Trac plugin] provides you with tools to import Atlassian Jira backup files into Trac.
    83 
    84 The plugin consists of a Python 3.1 commandline tool that:
    85 
    86  - Parses the Jira backup XML file
    87  - Sends the imported Jira data and attachments to Trac using the [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/XmlRpcPlugin XmlRpcPlugin]
    88  - Generates a htpasswd file containing the imported Jira users and their SHA-512 base64 encoded passwords
     86Also, ticket data can be imported from Sourceforge using the [http://trac.edgewall.org/browser/trunk/contrib/sourceforge2trac.py sourceforge2trac.py] script, available in the contrib/ directory of the Trac distribution.
    8987
    9088== Other ==
     
    9290Since 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.
    9391
    94 === Using a comma delimited file - CSV ===
     92=== Comma delimited file - CSV ===
    9593See [http://trac.edgewall.org/attachment/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)
    9694Comments 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.
    9795
    98 === Using an Excel (.xls) or comma delimited file (.csv) ===
    99 This plugin http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/TicketImportPlugin lets you import into Trac a series of tickets from a CSV file or (if the xlrd library is installed) from an Excel file.
    100 
    101 You can also use it to modify tickets in batch, by saving a report as CSV, editing the CSV file, and re-importing the tickets.
    102 
    103 This plugin is very useful when starting a new project: you can import a list of requirements that may have come from meeting notes, list of features, other ticketing systems... It's also great to review the tickets off-line, or to do massive changes to tickets.
    104 
    105 Based on the ticket id (or, if no id exists, on the summary) in the imported file, tickets are either created or updated.
