+1 on having a single page that users can use to find out what is going on 
with the migration.  Progressive disclosure to details could happen with links 
to details, keeping the main summary simple and easy to follow.

Nothing I've proposed will impact the mail forwarding
service.   That is an independent issue that we need to develop a plan
for and communicate. But it is reasonable that when we announce
mailing list changes that we'll also get questions related to the
forwarding service.

It makes me think that we would benefit from a single user-facing page
on the current status of the migration.  What has moved, what hasn't,
what the general plan is.  Something with a lot less technical detail
than we have on the wiki right now.  A high level summary that we can
point users to.
