    Actually, it looks like there’s a simple change that needs to be made to fix it.

    And done. Version 0.3 of the blogger importer plugin fixes the issue.

    Hi Jeffro,

    This is Rahul from BloggerToWP team.
    Thanks for the mention. :-)

    Otto is right that it was matter of minor fixes. But for the same reason, I feel that it should have been fixed earlier.
    Three months is way too much time to fix a small error like this. So I fixed and released the update myself.
    I believe this update, prompted wordpress developers to release 0.3 instantly.
    Had I know this before, I would have found some time for this earlier. ;-)

    @otto
    I am surprised that, blogger-importer is now distributed as a wordpress plugin.
    Then why it’s not in the component list of plugin’s trac?
    Anyway thanks for the quick fix. :-)

    Thanks,
    -Rahul

    The importers got moved to plugins around 3.0. I don’t know the reasoning there.

    @Otto – I checked detailed list of component and blogger-importer is missing from the component list.
    I manually added this component in drop-down list using firebug (thinking it might be UI glitch) but I still got warning on submission.
    May be core wordpress import/export tools, were added differently to plugin repo so “trac” has no “track of them”. Or may be just only moderators or automattic members can work on them.
    I hope you will figure it out. :-)

    Off-topic – On http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ we have link to add new forum topics. Can you add a direct link to add new “trac” ticket. Will help IMHO.
