OTN Forum software is going to be upgraded in May 2013

Update: the migration has been delayed so they can "establish thread level redirects across the site". Yay!

In case you missed the notifications, the Oracle Technology Network forum software is going to be upgraded this weekend. This is great, since the old software is getting long-in-the-tooth and doesn't allow a bunch of useful features. The current forums will be in read-only mode over the weekend.

On launch of the new version, a minimal set of features will be supported. Once the upgrade is stable, then additional features will be turned on.

As a side part to the migration project, some little used and obsolete forums will be removed. Some other categories will be reworked.

You can get more information about the migration here. One thing to note is that the forum software is powered by Jive; i.e it is a packaged application so not all features you (and I) have requested will magically become feasible. And also, for better or worse, Jive has renamed "forums" as "spaces" - apparently we can't change this.
