[FEATURE] Automatically migrate all 4
To simplify the user experience, we've decided to automatically migrate if there is exactly one profile during the -installer phase. This way we can avoid having the user see UI that only presents a single choice. In the vast majority of cases, this is really the right thing to do anyway.
P3s aren't going to make it in M10. Bulk moving to M11.
Summary: Automatically migrate if only 1 profile → [FEATURE] Automatically migrate all 4.x profiles
Simplified again. All migration will occur at install time. We should implement a space limit if we continue to do copying. A meeting will be held shortly to determine if the RTM product will continue to copy profiles or just use them in-place.

These bugs are not critical for beta 1, moving out.
Grace, this bug is about the desire to just do all the migrations in one shot without having to bother the user over it. This may not be possible, so the bug might get closed as invalid. However, it is nothing like the migrate one profile bugs since it intends to deal with all profiles. The only thing that makes this bug feasible is if we get migrate-in-place to work reliably and with high performance/low impact. The thing that may kill this is the concept of migrating profiles that "belong" to a user other than the one doing the install. We haven't decided that yet.
Moving all Profile Manager bugs to new Profile Manager Backend component. Profile Manager component to be deleted.
Moving this to M20.
Target Milestone: M17 → M20
Doing a mass reassign to Conrad Carlen. Conrad is going address all current and upcoming profile manager issues. Please do not hesitate to involve me in any of the issues.

What are current thoughts on this? This one is very old. We now automatically migrate if there is one profile and if there are more, ask the user which to migrate. Seems sensible. If we were to migrate many up front without asking first, it would increase disk space needs and initial startup time.
Setting to future due to lack of response to my last question.
Target Milestone: --- → Future
WONTFIX might be more appropriate. I don't think this is given serious consideration anymore.
