Tag well to relieve Migration Frustration
By OTN ArchBeat on Aug 27, 2008
Over the last several weeks I've been on the receiving end of a few emails and other messages from people who are less than pleased with the migration of blog content from the BEA Dev2Dev/Arch2Arch sites. Much of this frustration is focused on difficulties in finding previously published blog content, particularly that related to BEA products.
As has been addressed in this blog and elsewhere, a wholesale, mass migration of blog content from those BEA community sites was, for a variety of technical and organizational reasons, wildly impractical. The migration of blog content was therefore left to the individual bloggers.
Former BEA bloggers who have launched blogs here on blogs.oracle.com and migrated old content will be doing members of the original Dev2Dev and Arch2Arch communities an enormous service by carefully and thoroughly tagging any migrated posts, and taking any other steps to make content easy to find.
