Rt2->rt3 1.5 deficiencies

Hmm. The rt2-rt3 migration process doesn’t appear to be as functional as
I had hoped. I have successfully uploaded 1200 odd tickets worth of data
quite a bit of information.

That is - all of my scrips have failed to be translated - for the ones
using non-standard conditions or calling non-standard actions this is
expected, but none have made it through. This is a shame.

The second thing I have noticed is that none of my templates have made it
through the warp.

If these are features, then it might be worth documenting them as such.
That said I can’t see why Templates shouldn’t be preserved.

While none of these are earth-shattering, it does rather increase the
downtime for a migration if these things have to be patched up by hand -
creating 7 scrips for multiple queues can be a tad time consuming and
error prone. I guess I’ll have to investigate more automated methods.

IIRC, it was documented in the release announcement. APIs have changed
between 2.0 and 3.0 and it’s quite likely that your custom scrips and
templates will need to be reworked to be functional on 3.0. Just moving
them over is going to give users a false sense of security. But yes,
I’ll put a bigger warning in the README
