Subject Top level question on account migration
Date Mon, 27 Jun 2011 14:04:58 GMT
Along with the many other migration points, a critical question will be 
what we do with existing email addresses.

- Does anyone know roughly how many oo.o email addresses are currently 

- Do you get full mailbox support on the oo.o server currently, or are 
they just forwarding addresses?  (Note that committer 
accounts are mostly just .forwards at the moment, see [1] for more info 
on how current @a.o email works).

- My personal suggestion would be to keep the existing accounts (since 
there are plenty of past OOo contributors who probably count on them!), 
but not allow any new accounts until at least when the project graduates 
to top level.

But that's just a suggestion, it's up for the project to decide (and to 
work with the Apache infrastructure team to determine what can be 

I added this to the Transition Planning Community wiki page [2], which I 
(think?) is the overall coordination place for the transition work from 
Oracle servers to Apache servers.
