sf-issue-export / Home

Dumps all or selected tracker items or forum threads stored in a SourceForge XML backup file as plaint text to standard out or into a file.

To get usage information, run:

$ python --help

Personally I used this script for easy migration of some hand-selected tracker items and forum threads to a GoogleCode issue tracker system.


How to get the SourceForge XML backup file

In your SF project go to Project AdminFeature Settings and then select XML Export of the Backup feature.

Verify that the exported XML file is valid! In my case it was malformed and I had to remove some tags (which had no matching close tag) manually.
