Rt2-to-rt3 v1.15 import fails with errors

syslog is spewing errors as I try to import my 15k tickets. Running with
v1.15.

I suspect I’ll end up with way less than 15k tickets.

Redhat 8, perl 5.8 (vendor supplied), mysql 4.0.14

A sample,

Abort it. The “Parent” errors speak to something going wrong with the
new code in 1.15. A next rev of that code is somewhere on my today list.

Jesse,

I need to upgrade my production instance of RT from 2.x before Friday when
the old instance and the hardware and data center where it currently rests
is shuttered. It sounds like 1.15 of the importer needs to be avoided.
Will 1.16, or a release candidate for it, be ready by then? If not, would
you recommend I install 3.0.3, use 1.13 of the importer, then upgrade to
3.0.4?

Thanks,
Christian

Jesse,

I need to upgrade my production instance of RT from 2.x before Friday when
the old instance and the hardware and data center where it currently rests
is shuttered. It sounds like 1.15 of the importer needs to be avoided.

3.0.4?

Nothing in 3.0.4 breaks the old importer.

Known issues:

RT 3.0.0-3.0.4: on import, priority will not be set.
(The version of RT in aegis fixes this)

Importer 1.0-1.13:

If ticket watchers don't have email addresses, they won't be
imported. This was fixed in 1.15.

If tickets have attachments other than singlepart email messages,
those attachments might be attached to the wrong transactions.
This was fixed _for me_ in 1.15. Clearly it didn't work for
Matt. I suspect it's something on the order of a typo.

Thanks,
Christian
