Not only on migration. There were several projects. One was a COTS package called Testtrack by Seapine Software, another one was a little DW project, with a PHP front end and the migration came last. The migration was what failed miserably. I killed the project today. To tell the truth, the Testtrack bug tracker works beautifully, our developers have nothing but praises for it.
