            Regarding the Mooodle roadmap (http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Roadmap#Version_2.2), what happened to the following:

            • Restore 1.9 user data - adding the ability to restore user data in 1.9 backups

            I thought this feature was suppose to be targeted for 2.2. Is it unscheduled?

            We just didn't get to it in time for 2.2, Rex, sorry. As promised we have time-based, not feature-based releases. It's there under "Other major priorities" - hopefully 2.3 depending on programmer time.

            The lack of this feature will delay meaningful piloting of 2.x for many schools I know. IMO, this was a blocker from day one.

            Robert, I'd really like some data on these schools since you know them. Who are they and what are their needs really? Why do they see this as a blocker?

            I've not seen it as a blocking issue because:

            a) Moodle 1.9 courses can be restored without user data. This addresses the bulk of teacher's needs to restart courses from saved templates.
            b) Moodle 1.9 backups with user data can be converted to Moodle 2.0 backups with user data via a workaround - restore to a 1.9 site, upgrade the site to 2.0 and then make a backup.

            Regarding backup/restore with user data. At University of Minnesota we've developed an automated process following option B as described by Martin. We've been using it since August and have moved hundreds of courses in that manner with few problems, and will be moving thousands more over the next 6-9 months. Inconvenient, but it has worked quite well for us. We're currently on 2.0 so had to go down this path this out of necessity, regardless of user data.
