Important: Schedule for Oct 23rd migration from Google Groups to Discourse


(Wes Brown) #1

Next week, on Oct 23rd, we’ll be making this Google Group mailing list “read-only”. This means no new messages or new accounts will be allowed.

Why? Per our previous communications, we are migrating to a Discourse forum where participating in this community will be much easier and more fun. The migration schedule is as follows:

Tuesday - Oct 23rd, 9 am EST

  • Mailing list is made read-only. No new messages or accounts allowed.

Thursday - Oct 25th, 9 am EST

  • Forum goes live for existing members to claim their migrated messages. Instructions for claiming your messages will come at that time.

Tuesday - Oct 30th, 9 am EST

  • New forum goes live to the public

If you have any questions, email me directly at wes.brown@openlmis.org

Thanks,

-Wes

Hi Wes,

For some general clarity, if the team has something to post/discuss between the 23rd and 30th – what would you suggest is done? Use slack?

Thanks,

Mary Jo

That is a great question! Please note that the migration should be done by the the 25th (at the latest), not the 30th, and that the system should be running by that date. The 30th is just the date when we will open up our Discourse instance for public user registration. The smaller window of downtime should reduce the likelihood of someone needing to post significantly and either waiting for Discourse, posting in Slack, or sending an email should all be fine alternatives.

Thanks,

-Wes
