    53 
    54   * STATUS_KEYWORDS:  Attach ticket keywords for the Bugzilla statuses not available in Trac.  By default, the 'VERIFIED' and 'RELEASED' Bugzilla statuses are translated into Trac keywords.

    89 
    90 Since trac uses a SQL database to store the data, you can import from other systems by examining the database tables. Just go into [http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite.html sqlite] command line to look at the tables and import into them from your application.
    91 
    92 === Comma delimited file - CSV ===
    93 See [http://trac.edgewall.org/attachment/wiki/TracSynchronize/csv2trac.2.py csv2trac.2.py] for details.  This approach is particularly useful if one needs to enter a large number of tickets by hand. (note that the ticket type type field, (task etc...) is also needed for this script to work with more recent Trac releases)
    94 Comments on script: The script has an error on line 168, ('Ticket' needs to be 'ticket').  Also, the listed values for severity and priority are swapped.
     40Since Trac uses a SQL database to store the data, you can also custom-import from other systems by examining the database tables. Just go into [https://www.sqlite.org/sqlite.html sqlite] command line to look at the tables and import them from your application.
