Re: [VOTE] Moving to

First of all, this is not a must-have, if you decide to not move, then
we won't.

Hmm you're right here, but wouldn't it be possible to auto-subscribe
everyone who's here to the new one (if one)? I think that should be

Sawfish is in `Others' section and since 2007 only 3 translations have
been modified. So I won't count that as benefit, since the time MetaCity
got the default GNOME-WM.

Well, transistion is maybe not needed, most (60%) are plans John had,
30% are invalid/closed/fixed meanwhile and the other 10% are mostly
feature-requests and a very few bugreports. And if we use BZ it should
be possible to "simply" copy the librep/rep-gtk/sawfish entries from the
old to the new DB, though Christian Kirbach or someone would have to do
that, as we don't have access to BGOs DB.

You may ask why?

- GNOME has dropped Sawfish for a very long time and does not support it
in any way anymore (We only have those GIT/BugZilla-Acc/ML as every
project on their server got them, those 3 translations (of which 2 are
outdated again) don't really make a difference) -- This is the major
reason, to leave the "old world" behind and life on our own.

- Sawfish is currently split:

Downloads: SF
HP: Wikia

I've thought it would be better to have everything in one place. About
the Wiki: shouldn't it be possible to install MediaWiki (or whatever)
on, say, and simply copy the content of to it? I guess that would be the easiest.

Well as I said it's YOUR decision.
