    77 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], [http://postgres.org postgres] or [http://mysql.org mysql] command line to look at the tables and import into them from your application.

     92=== Comma delimited file - CSV ===
     93See [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)
     94Comments 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.
