Just starting, with a backlog of exisitng bugs from prior system.  How can I migrate these to FogBugz?

What is your existing system and what export options are available.

What do you do if your "old system" is a 17 page Word document that looks like this:

New Features To Add:

-Feature Reqeust 1
    -user specs user specs user specs
    -user specs user specs user specs
    -user specs user specs user specs

-Bug
    -details on how to reproduce

-Feature Request 2
    -user specs user specs user specs

No, I'm serious. So far I've "imported" the first two pages into FogBugz. Any ideas would be appreciated, I've got a few, I wouldn't mind hearing others that might be easier...

Yikes!  Grin and bear it and then relax because you'll NEVER have to deal with it again since your using FB :)

I wish there was a better way, but the amount of time you'll spend writing a big REGEXP parser to pull out your data from Word would probably take as long as it would for you to cut and paste into fogbugz.
