I thought you were trying to use the XML dumps from JIRA.

Because no one gave me a heads up until after the fact which annoyed me
greatly. There are actually questions you chose not to answer which I
asked you directly when the situation arose i.e. that you thought it
within the purview of infrastructure to move Maven issues simply because
Maven is an Apache project without having to consult the people involved
in the project.

If it makes it easier just take our install wholus bolus with an
unmassaged dump and I'm sure you can remove what's necessary when you're
done. But I didn't realize you were using the raw SQL, I thought you
were using the xml import/export thing.
