I'd just like to remind people that moving from community erases all
package metadata entirely -- there's no real move operation. If your
package has a lot of important votes/comments, I would consider
waiting until we come to some backend changes which allow easier
moving. Louipc is working on this at the moment, so hopefully it
shouldn't be too long.
