Re: [Feedback requested] Proposed phases and timeline for Discourse migration

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.214.181

The US will involve at least researching what we need to do, and then possibly implementing the fixes, depending on whether the shutdown ends up being scheduled for the week of June 19 or July 10.
