This discussion is about account migration between pods.
Current github issue
Summary: We all agree this is an important feature, but it's hard to deal with considering privacy and security issues.

Abandon the feature? Closed Fri 11 Jan 2013 4:01AM
We're not abandoning this feature. :)
We could always abandon this feature. If we do, it means clearing that advert text on diasporaproject, letting people know in the GH Issue that it's not gonna happen in the near future, and closing it out.
I don't necessarily want to do this, but I figured this is the best time to bring up abandoning an issue, as no work has been done yet.

Our users have the rights to the content they post on DIASPORA. Therefore, I think we should press on with this feature as long as we can get it done quickly and without any security issues. Those are my main two concerns.

This is one of the most important features missing. Without the ability to migrate to another pod (be it a full wizard or manual export/import with limited dataset) - Diaspora* is just a collection of separate pods, not a proper network.

This feature is absolutely one of THE key elements of the Diaspora concept of privacy and user ownership of their own data. Without it, Diaspora will not be the network it was set up to be.
However long it takes, it must be implemented eventually.
