Account registration on the old site is disabled already. This means
that we can decide what to do with users that have accounts in the old
site and not in the new one. The two main options are:

1) Import all user accounts from the old site and provide a "delete"
functionality so users that do not want to have an account on the new
site. Cons: the data of how many users we have is compromised.

2) Keep supporting the on-demand migration of accounts (if the user
logins with their username/password from the old site), and rely on
the migration email/notification that is going to be send to all the
users of the old site (so the interested subset of those users comes
voluntarily to the new site). Cons: future broadcasts to all users
will only include users that decided to login on the new site.

In any of those cases the usernames of old users will be reserved
because we are linking to the old profiles based on that id.


Feel free to forward this email to the community list or any other
p2pu mailing list if we need more feedback.
