Two _wp_attachment_metadata records when importing attachments

Description

When importing attachments with the WordPress import, two _wp_attachment_metadata records get created in the postmeta table. One of the records creates all new metadata from the file that is imported to the file system. The second record grabs the _wp_attachment_metadata out of the import file (which is already serialized) and serializes the entire thing as a string.

(In [15961]) Importer and exporter overhaul, mega props duck.

Exporter overhaul:

  • Add author information to export
  • Greater usage of slug identifiers
  • Don't export auto-drafts, spam comments, or edit lock/last meta keys
  • Inline documentation improvements
  • Remove filtering for now (@todo)
  • Bump WXR version to 1.1, but remain back compat in the importer

Importer overhaul (http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/304249):

  • Use an XML parser where available (SimpleXML, XML Parser)
  • Proper import support for navigation menus
  • Many bug fixes, specifically improvements to category and custom taxonomy handling
  • Better author/user mapping
