Summary0006934: GNATS to Mantis export

This is a script I made to export data from a GNATS database to a Mantis database. GNATS is the bug tracker of the GNU project. This Perl script export as much data as it can from the GNATS files to the Mantis database. It still lack some features for now, but it is fully explain in the README file.

Additional Information
  • Tested on a relatively big database (~30 projects for a total of 9000 bugs) with GNATS 3.113 and Mantis 1.0.1
TagsNo tags attached.

Ping Colin. If you happen to have around the latest script, I'll take care of adding it to a contrib directory in SVN
