restore user accounts after upgrade?

Question asked by nadaoneal on Mar 4, 2009
Hi everyone,
I've successfully installed the latest Labs 3 Stable, and would like to copy over the user accounts, if not the user accounts and spaces, from the 3c installation. I tried pointing a Labs 3 Stable install to a (copy of) the old 3c database and 3c alf_data directory, which seemed to work, but produced a number of weird errors, like no metadata showing up for any file, no permissions to upload in the spaces, etc. Have any of you successfully moved over just the user accounts, or user accounts and spaces, preserving permissions? Relatedly, is there a hacky backend way to add a user to a space without them having to accept an invite?
(Using MySQL on Fedora.)
  Thanks.
