Following a review[1] of the quality of migration-assistant[2] and the
resources available to support it at the Ubuntu Development Summit in
Oakland for the Quantal release Ubuntu we have decided to remove
migration-assistant from the installer for Quantal and to move the
package to universe.  Additionally, migration-assistant will be removed
from ubiquity in the 12.04.1 release.

However, the Ubuntu Foundations team will be happy to reintroduce
migration-assistant if someone is willing to maintain it and fix some of
its current bugs.


You can find some of the bugs that need fixing here too.
