Was the migration the first thing you did after bundle install or did you
go through the process of setting up Octopress first?

Either way, this is a migrator bug, but knowing exactly what you did will
help us reproduce the issue.

We've started a new repositories where we're keeping the migrators: jekyll/jekyll-import. We should discuss this over there, mostly because I think it's been fixed already :-)

Someone was File.dirname(FILE) instead of Dir.pwd.

@mattr- Yes, I did first setup the Octopress and ran that migration.
After some googles, this nifty hack of symlinking did work. First I created a dir named _posts and symlinked it. Then running the migration did solved this issue.

@parkr I stubled upon that repo but it did not have the README file so just skipped that.
