A phpBB to bbPress database converter
I switched my site’s phpBB forum to bbPress, and I’ve released the script I used for this purpose under the terms of the GPL.
It’s largely based on the excellent starting point from Bruno Torres, to which I added some new features — like bbCode conversion with clean XHTML 1.1 compliant output, smily to text transcription, and the ability to import topics marked as closed, sticky and announcements as such.
I made also some little bugfixing, and the resulting script was able to cleanly import almost everything valuable from my old phpBB database.

Hope it helps to spread bbPress and web standards all around!
