We are actively trying to apply pressure to Xilinx to mitigate the effects of this disastrous migration, but need the support of the community to get our voices heard.

It is a sad statement on the nature of the FPGA commercial interests when they ignore their customer base. Or more accurately, they don't understand their customer base... or even more accurately define their customer base to exclude nearly everyone in this forum.
I recall a mapping data base that Microsoft provided on the web which was retired. It was a nothing for them to maintain it, less than a gnat's effort for a Goliath like Microsoft. We had enough outcry and in particular from one of our ranks (which likely only numbered in the low thousands) that they relented and restored service... for a while. Then it was shut off permanently. Here I expect the interest is much greater and the loss to Xilinx more significant. The question is do you have an in house champion? I think that is what it 's going to take.
