Migration from Gallery3 - mysql error: 'anonymous_id' cannot be null

Hi folks.  I started yesterday to see if I could get my gallery3 install migrated to piwigo.  Getting the albums / photos moved over wasn't that bad (except for same special character problems ...) but I can't get the gallery3 database with the comments, etc., into the piwigo database using the plugin.  The text of the warning is below.

I'm not a php person, but I can read perl fair enough.  I looked at the the old perl script that the plugin came from, and there's not even an anonymous_id column listed when the INSERT INTO is generated.  Am I missing something in the original gallery3 database?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Migration from Gallery3 - mysql error: 'anonymous_id' cannot be null

Ok, I knew as soon as I actually broke down and asked the question I'd figure it out.

I don't know if this is a GOOD solution, but I did poke through the plugin code and found that it looked like anonymous_id came from the server_remote_host column in the gallery3 columns table.  In my gallery3 database, all those values are null (at least all the comments entered in the original gallery1 install were -- oops didn't check that the gallery3 columns were null).  I set them equal to the ip address in server_http_host (which was NOT null).  Now that anonymous_id has a value in it, everything was imported and my comments are showing up.
