What do you think Bob and I did?  I wrote a SQL script to massage the raw
data from codehaus.  Had that done the night you were asking on
infrastructure that we leave Maven on codehaus because you didn't want to
move at the time.

When tested all of the features, we found problems in the migration, which
Jeff wanted to look into.  One of his comments was that Jira probably did
not like a raw database migration because of some of its other quirks.  He
was going to do the same thing to the XML format that I had done to the SQL
format, and try to import that way.  I believe that the reason we haven't
heard much from him is because he got Bob's permission to take a copy of the
codehaus dump to a test machine at Atlassian, which is where he is working
on migration rather than on nagoya.
