#12578 assigned enhancement

import from movable type doesn't import tags or basename

Description

The current movable type import script doesn't import tags from movable type and it doesn't import the basename (movable type's version of the post_name, which is necessary for a seemless transition). Adding support for importing these two important bits is not terribly difficult and I'm working on improving the import script to aid in my own upcoming migration. I'll attach a patch against the trunk.

basename in #11422.

As discussed in IRC I think we need to come up with a better way to break up the tags. Or just accept the edge cases and go with it as is.
