Batch import of RSS feeds into WPMU
This task is part of the FellowshipHacks/Projects/Blog project.
To migrate blog posts (and other data), we rely on RSS files exported from EZ. We must be able to import these files in batch mode (the currente RSS import feature in WPMU requires manual intervention by the user).

We have a working manual procedure, based on wget + a modified version of the wp-admin/import/rss.php file).
- Integrate the procedure into our main migration script, and refine it for performance (e.g. don't kill the EZ or WP server trying to import too many blogs in a little time).
Try the remote RSS import plugin: http://nosheep.net/story/import-remote-rss-in-wordpress/
Not available anymore
Check if the old batch method (for pre 2.x versions) described in http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content#Importing_from_an_RSS_feed is still usable with the current version of the PHP import script
- No, it doesn't work
- Hack the WPMU PHP import script wp-admin/import/rss.php to work in batch mode
