[rt-users] Question about migration

	I know of no ready-built programs (unfortunately). However, RT offers 
CLI which allows you to create/edit/show tickets in RT outside of the 
WebUI. I have about 7k to 8k tickets I need to migrate from a home-grown 
system in Oracle to our current RT (3.6.4) in Oracle. My plan is to 
write some SQL code that will walk thru the "home-grown" DataBase and 
for each ticket it finds, execute some embedded CLI to map that data and 
create a new RT ticket. So, if you're the kinda person that gets all 
excited about writing new code and have any SQL and/or CLI experience, 
I'd be more than happy to collaborate with you on this task.
