I wouldn't start cleaning up your system just yet...wait until there is a updater for it...which probably won't be out until the final install...even if they finish the upgrader by the time the beta is out, I doubt they would include it...why would they want a bunch of people converting their phpbb2 board over to a beta...especially since most of the people that use phpbb are noobs with HTML, PHP, and MYSQL...we would just get a thousand questions/complaints a day because people are having problems with a beta. ;)

AFAIK, the phpBB2 -> phpBB3 converter is already done and is working.
Also, the dev team said, IIRC, that the converter will be release with later Olympus betas or the first Release Candidate.

It would be sweet if they could release it now...I would really love to have that...but it would give them a support nightmare as a bunch of people act like phpbb3 is finished and start upgrading. :(

It cannot be downloaded. As I stated in my previous post, the dev team will only release it once the first RC will be available (or maybe the last beta...).

Why do you want a convertor to a schema that has been openly stated will have no upgrade path (has to be done manually by inspection)?

Just wait and you will be rewarded.

To convert data from a live board to have a starting point for testing (see other thread about upgrading).
