Please let infra know via a JIRA ticket when you are ready for the forums migration
to be completed, I'm waiting with baited breath. I am not going to continue to 
trawl these lists for hints of what you guys want, please let me know via infra
list or ticket when you are ready.

I have yet to see a request to infra either via the mailing the list or the Jira
that you want this migration doing.

Consider me 'sufficiently skilled' to do the migration and let me know via infra
list or jira ticket what you decide to do with it.

All I need for forums and wiki migration is upto date copies of the dbs.

Once more so it is clear, I do not read all mails on this list so I may miss any 
requests or ideas or whatnot, come to infra when you made your minds up.
