 This config conversion script provides support for basic Icinga 1.x

 hosts as members" trick from 1.x and convert that into Icinga2's template

+system.
 
 Furthermore the old "service with contacts and notification commands" logic
 will be converted into Icinga2's logic with new notification objects,
 allowing to define notifications directly on the service definition then.
 
+Commands will be split by type (Check, Event, Notification) and relinked where
+possible. The host's check_command is dropped, and a possible service hostcheck
+looked up, if possible.
+
+Notifications will be built based on the service->contact relations, and
+escalations will also be merged into notifications, having times begin/end as
+additional attributes. Notification options will be converted into the new Icinga2
+logic.
+
+Dependencies and Parents are resolved into host and service dependencies with
+many objects tricks as well.
+
+Timeperiods will be converted as is, because Icinga2's ITL provides the legacy-timeperiod
+template which supports that format for compatibility reasons.
+
+Custom attributes like custom variables, *_urls, etc will be collected into the
+custom dictionary, while possible macros are automagically converted into the macro
+dictionary (freely definable macros in Icinga 2.x).
+
 All required templates will be inherited from Icinga2's Template Library (ITL).
