    Is there one? If not, can we start one? So far we've encountered, or seen in this forum:

    * Migrations from older versions to 10 misses all imap folders other than inbox
    * Migrations from older versions to 10 misses files that begin with period in the httpdocs folder, such as .htaccess
    * Migrations from older versions to 10 miss forwards and aliases on email addresses

    It's really quite impossible to understand how the migration manager can't be fixed; it has been broken ever since Plesk 9 came out. There has not been a single version of Plesk released since 8.6 where the migration manager did not mess things up in one way or another, whether it be missing files, not assigning the SSL certs, ignoring permissions on the directories under /private that are migrated, etc. How hard is it to use tar or rsync to produce a perfect copy of at least the files that move to a new server? Obviously there's more involved in extracting the non-file stuff out of the psa database but seriously, it can't even copy files correctly?
