One of the biggest problems with moving the code, and I'm speaking from personal experience, is all the forks. I have several open source projects on github and many of those have been forked and have people contributing. There are also many links to my repos on various sites. When I move then I lose my connection to those forks and contributors. It's a messed up situation and really has me wishing there was an easier way to migrate.

And that's why I asked, I'm not precisely experienced in these matters. Still, if the process is difficult, best to start now while you have it and not when the project gets taken down for supporting a "toxic hate speech site," no?

It's a good question and I've wondered the same thing about voat's code. It's going to be way too much work for me to move everything right now, so I'm kind of stuck for awhile. The thing is, I'll still have to leave the old repos there so that I can redirect people to the new place. Otherwise all the links out there to my stuff will be dead. So then I think, if I have to leave it there anyways then why move in the first place? It sucks.
