No currently existing pages will be deleted; they'll probably be moved
or something, so no data will be lost. Initially there might be broken
links (e.g. to Tb:foo instead of Thunderbird:foo) or so, but hopefully
that'll get sorted out after a couple of days.
dmose has pointed out a recommended timeframe to migrate at the end of
this week, ~14 march, and I am supportive of that as well.
Any thoughts/objections about this timeframe?
Does it make sense to add a "How to help", even if we haven't yet
identified all the ways (there are many) that someone might help? Not
sure where to place it. FWIW Seamonkey's heading along these lines is
Also, I'm thinking there must be a better term for the major heading
"Development" - something more generic, more encompassing, less
intimidating. Can't put my finger on a suggestion just yet. Maybe it
should be a meld somehow of the "How to help"?

BTW, "test" on http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/getinvolved/ points
to QMO, which speaks only of Firefox.
My understanding was that if QMO is only about Firefox, it's because the
Tb community are not doing our bit to populate it with Thunderbird
content, not because it's not welcome there. I'm looking to fix that,
rather than to build a new site for Tb QA. Suggestions welcome.
So the only thing that's actually going to be moving is that single
page, correct? Everything else (except for stuff that's we don't want
to link to from the new iteration of the page) will disappear. (?)
All currently existing pages will still remain on the wiki and can still
be accessed; albeit from a different location.
Except for, as I understood our f2f discussion, pages that are already
under Thunderbird:, which will stay where they are. Right?
If there are no objections, the migration will go ahead tomorrow, 14 March.
The old page can still be accessed from
http://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird with a note that it is out of date
and kept for archival purposes only.
All existing pages can still be accessed from their usual locations.
For clarity, the old wiki page has been moved to
http://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird redirected to the new page instead.
