[wp-hackers] Importing Serendipity content into Wordpress

As I'm a new user to Wordpress, this is my first post to this list.  
I've just migrated my weblog from Serendipity to Wordpress. Because I  
couldn't find any other way to get my old content into Wordpress,  
I've written an import script that imports the posts and comments and  
preserves the old Serendipity URI's in Wordpress.

The script is a hack - in the bad sense of the word. I needed  
something quick 'n dirty and thats what it turned out to be. I've  
posted the script at http://www.filipdewaard.com/personal/long-time- 
no-see/ (its GNU GPL). Maybe this will help somebody else who is  
planning to migrate. Additionally, it would be nice to add something  
like this to Wordpress. If someone wants to use my script as a  
starting point to write a more mature version or wants to port it to  
the Wordpress API, I would be happy to cooperate.

Just drop me a message if you have any questions or comments about  
the script.

With kind regards,

Filip de Waard
