Message I agree that moving there would be "a good thing" (TM)
CollabNet as far as I know has not added new features or evolutions, and
looking at how other competitors closed I see that there could be an
announcement anytime soon.
So doing that now without much pressure is better than later.

But we need a plan for moving there, our build is complex enough so we need
to be sure that everything will work. In case there is agreement, do you
would like to lead the initiative?
