I would like to propose a tool that would allow users to easy migrate from uTorrent to Transmission. Changing Bittorrent clients is really painful. There is no easy way to do this and most of the users would like to transfer their torrents that they are seeding without much of the fuss. It's not extremely hard to move from uTorrent to Transmission as long as you keep all of downloaded files in the same folder and download the entire torrents but if you moved you downloaded files to different location and downloaded only a part of the torrent. Then you're screwed. More so if you have more than 600+ active seeding torrents. Using .torrent files generated from magnet link by uTorrent is also not a good idea because uTorrent for some stupid reason does not store tracker information in their .torrent files.
I guess we all would love to have ratio infomation, location of downloaded files, original time of adding torrent to client, trackers information, list of downloaded files within torrent etc. transferred easily from uTorrent to Transmission.
I'm not a programmer so I don't know much about this part of things but I guess understanding resume.dat (file in uTorrent which stores information about trackers, time of adding torrent, ratio, list of downloaded files, location of downloaded files etc.) can't be that hard. Especially when there are similar tools available for qBittorrent and Deluge.
I'm posting link for them (github) in this thread so devs can look into them. I think that tool used in qBittorrent can be adjusted to work with Transmission without much work.

Thank you for your consideration.

You could try using https://github.com/mikedld/bt-migrate which allows migrating from Deluge, rTorrent, and uTorrent/BitTorrent to Transmission. I admit it might not be as user-friendly as the tools you liked to though... Feedback is welcome, as I'm planning to get back to this tool in a bit.
I saw this tool but I'm not very familiar with Linux so without more detail instruction I can't really use it.
If I remember correctly, I used bt-migrate about a year ago to migrate from utorrent to transmission, and the migration went quite satisfactorily.
