Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

Provide the ability to migrate content from previous versions of Fedora to Fedora 6. Previous versions should include at least Fedora versions 3, 4 and 5.

Migrate the content (files and metadata), the inter-content and intra-content relationships, and the audit history of the content.

Migrate all content so that Fedora 6 administers the content in a fashion as good or better than the previous Fedora. Specifically, if the previous Fedora manages the bits, Fedora 6 should manage the bits. If the previous Fedora is aware of but does not manage the bits (external content), Fedora 6 should also be at least aware of, and (optionally, if possible) migrate and manage the bits.
