Migrating Projects from one JIRA installation to another.

Hi, We have two separate JIRA installations that we want to merge together and we're wondering what the best approach is to take. Specifically, what's the best order to do the following on the merged installation...

- Create/configure new Projects

- Create/configure Workflows and Workflow Schemes

- Create/configure Issue Types, Issue Type Schemes

- Create/configure Screens, Screen Schemes, and Issue Type Screen Schemes

- Create/configure Custom Fields, Field Configurations, and Field Configuration Schemes

Is there any documentation that goes over this process?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
