VSE 8.8 Policy Migration Tool -- Client Tasks lose tags

I'm just wondering if anyone else has used this tool and noticed something similar...

I wanted to review what this tool offers and how long it might take, so using a copy of the prod database in the lab I went to town. Gladly, it only took a few minutes. After reviewing all the copied policies and assignments I was very pleased. Then I moved on to Client Tasks and again was quite pleased at all the work I wouldn't need to do. Then I finally noticed the one thing that didn't get carried over: The Tags!

We use several different scan tasks for different types of systems, and rely heavily on the ability to include and/or exclude systems by associating their tags. The migration tool apparently was unaware or unable to mirror that aspect of each of the client tasks. It's still certainly worth using, but I think I have to give it a B- instead of an A. It didn't take more than 5 minutes to drop the tags in appropriately, but it's made me a little more concerned about what other details might be missed.

Just an observation. Anyone else notice anything strange with the conversion tool?

Are you still having issues with the tool? I've moved this to our VSE area for better attention.
