Help migrating from Trac

So, we're is exploring the possibility of moving away from Trac to Lighthouse. However, we have a bunch of data in our current Trac system (too much to move by hand) that we'd like to move over if possible. I searched the forums and the Google and found references to a migration tool that looks like it hasn't been updated in a couple years now (http://github.com/shayarnett/trachouse). Does anyone have any more recent experiences with a Trac-to-Lighthouse migration, either using Trachouse or other solutions? Is this possible, or not worth the effort? Any tips and insights would be helpful before we sink a bunch of hours into this experiment.

    Jess -

    Importing is definitely possible. While we don't have a specific method in place on the application, we've always encouraged the use of the API by our customers for just this kind of situation. I would do a small subset of your Trac tickets as well as get familiar with the way Lighthouse ticket and project creation works.

    We've not heard bad things about Shay Arnett's Trac-to-Lighthouse importer. Let us know if you have any more questions.

    Thanks,
    Nicole
