Using a new debian 6.0.5 system, I get the following error trying to run the script:

~/bin/ "Name" email@domain log < ~/share/wordpress.2012-08-23.xml.edited | git-fast-import
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/luke/bin/", line 139, in <module>
  File "/home/luke/bin/", line 65, in main
    content += x.find('content:encoded').string.replace('\r\n', '\n')
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'replace'
git-fast-import statistics:

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong would be appreciated.

When I attempt to use this script, I get the following error: warning: Not updating refs/heads/master (new tip 26b1787fca04f2f9772b6854843fe99fe06e6088 does not contain fc0ad65d14d88fd27a6cee74c7cef3176f6900ec). I have git, any ideas?


KeyError: 146

I also get this error, here's the output (it seems to stem from an error in the python script):

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "../", line 74, in 
  File "../", line 54, in main
    data = content.encode('ascii', 'html_replace')
  File "../", line 30, in 
    % htmlentitydefs.codepoint2name[ord(c)] for c in x.object[x.start:x.end]]), x.end))

It works fine.... The script is picky about having everything in proper UTF-8, and proper XML and HTML escaping. You need that to have a successful import. I let Emacs remove DOS line endings, and it works OK (if on *nix of some sort, of course). Thing is with this git fast-import, is that you have to git reset afterwards, (let's say you put them in posts/) git checkout posts, git add posts, then commit. I don't know if this a characteristic with git fast-import, but this is the way I get my posts to exist on the filesystem. If I don't do this, then I lose the data. If you get that "Not updating..." error, then just --force the import in. --simonraven
