This script is used to import bugs from another installation of bugzilla. It can be used in two ways. First using the move function of bugzilla on another system will send mail to an alias provided by the administrator of the target installation (you). Set up an alias similar to the one given below so this mail will be automatically run by this script and imported into your database. Run 'newaliases' after adding this alias to your aliases file. Make sure your sendmail installation is configured to allow mail aliases to execute code. bugzilla-import: "|/usr/bin/perl /opt/bugzilla/importxml.pl --mail" Second it can be run from the command line with any xml file from STDIN that conforms to the bugzilla DTD. In this case you can pass an argument to set whether you want to send the mail that will be sent to the exporter and maintainer normally. importxml.pl [options] bugsfile.xml
