Thanks for explaining. I think we will have to think about how to solve 
these remaining issues after the CMS Website goes live.

Thanks for the offer. Mehdi will let you know if he needs your help. I 
would imagine it would make sense if one person took care of it, but I'm 
sure Mehdi will yell if he needs help.

That's great news.

yes theres no harm to keep them just in case we forgot to move some 
content over.

Thanks Clay. Once Mehdi has a handle on the merge of the 1.1 changes I 
would like to agree a date. For now I'll suggest a tentative switchover 
date of 2nd November, which is 2 weeks from today. Does anyone see an 
issue with that?
