Are there any plans to move old GotDotNet discussions and information related Web Service Factory to new CodePlex forum?

I found that old GotDotNet still contains some valuable information, which are not available here and was wondering if there are any plans to move old material to here or should I keep searching in both sites?

Also I was wondering if there are any other sites for WCF Service Factory information than following URL links?

(GotDotNet - Previous Patterns & Practices: Service Factory Home)

(CodePlex – Current Patterns & Practices: Web Service Software Factory home)

Hey Alexander,

Honestly, there are no plans in place to move over the GDN discussions. However, the fact you brought it up means there could be some value in doing so. I'll look into our ability to do this. Maybe we could move the relevant threads over with a prefix of "From GDN" or something.

I would certainly encourage any of you to do this if you find something on GDN you think would be good to have here. The HOL are undergoing a revamp right now so most of those threads won't be relevant here.

I'm trying to keep the Known Issues document up to date (it is already quite different than the one Service Factory shipped with). Are there broad areas you think would be good to move over?

I think some threads mainly as I always check the gotdotnet before entering a forum/issue tracker here. Anyhow it’s not a big deal end of the day.
