I recently completed porting our open-source user group website to nukes (it's not live yet). We have a few years of mail-list archives that we would like to import, if possible. Anybody have ideas on this? Did the JBoss Group import their mail-list archives? Or did you just start fresh when you switched to nukes?
One idea that I have is to write a Perl script that will parse the archives and just do direct inserts into the database for each message.
we did that with 2 mysql databases and a set of SQL commands to process the conversion. the previous format was jive forums. you can have access to them, they are in the codebase of the forum as a ddl AFAIR.
