That might depend on when exactly you plan to do this migration. It seems there
is some bug that needs fixing, and I'm currently extremely busy with real-life,
with little hope of finding time for finding sufficient time before Christmas.
Would that still be an acceptable deadline? Would you also be prepared to do
some early testing of a bugfixed version? I guess I'll also need testers...

Thanks and sorry for the not-so-helpful news,
