    initial v1  
    1 Reassigning to myself, I've made some progress here. The phpBB import script works mostly fine, one has to change the table names however (it expects "phpbb_" table prefix which we don't have). There is some weirdness: some topics were put under "Your first category" or "Your first category/Your first forum" instead of the correct forums. Also, anonymous posts now have "system" as author. Finally, topic IDs weren't kept, that will make redirects from the current forum complicated.

There is an exception processing invalid URLs, e.g. `Object aasted.org/adblock has no method 'splice'`. Finally, topic IDs weren't kept, that will make redirects from the current forum complicated.

    33The import script I used is outdated, the current Discourse version has a newer one. I'll need to look into whether it solves any of the issues above, and whether it will run with our Discourse version (updating Discourse is also an option of course).
