Hi Martin,

Sophie, great to hear this.

Just a suggestion - would it not be better to move that wiki page, once it
is finished in English and maybe localized in a few languages, to LO help
(by the time of string freeze, LO63RC1)?

Some (corporate/government/military etc.) users do not have internet access
due to security reasons, also wiki is simpler to hack, servers can be down

If local help is not present, the system can still redirect to wiki help,
that mechanism is already in place.

From what I understood during the ESC call last week (see the minutes at
the end of this mail), it is transitional until the assistant does its
job. For the moment, some cases are not took into account during the
migration and can mess the database, this is what will be explained in
the how-to, what you should do if your database is out of what the
migration tool can process.
The wiki page will adapt to the progress of the migration assistant
until it's able to migrate all or most types of databases. Drew will
blog also about the progress.
So, I think it's better to have it in the wiki for the moment and have
the help page for 6.4 when and if the migration assistant issues are solved.

Minutes of the ESC on the topic:
 + HSQLDB vs. Firebird ? (Caolan)
            + last release punted out decision on removing HSQLDB
            + should we do that / who makes that decision ?
            + would like to see it go but – do we think it will work ?
            + not a good idea to remove HSQLDB in 6.3 (Drew)
               + migration assistant is not capable of moving the
                 majority of files it can run across.
               + E-mail on dev. list about this.
               + recommend leave firebird active as in 6.2
               + recommend expose migration assistant as it is today
                  + but reasonable set of data-types doesn’t work for
               + needs to be fixed & improving SDBC driver to have parity
                 with HSQL – spend time to 6.4 to focus activities to
                 encourage migration.
               + prefer to drop this for 6.4 ...
            + what is the state ? (Caolan)
               + firebird is the default in 6.2 (Drew)
                   + in 6.3 we get the migration assistant out of the box.
               + suggest on the dialog box saying “want to migrate ?” (Drew)
                   + link to a wiki page with a tutorial to help there.
               + tie it into some blog posts – to get some urgency here
AI:                + add link to the dialog (Caolan)
            + do we have a migration tracking bug ? (Caolan)
