 @jonoaldersonwp I like your plan.

 > In an ideal world we'd attempt to migrate some of the useful content,
 but this requires more resource than we can reasonably throw at this.

 The Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Phone apps are deprecated and abandoned,
 and the only interesting topics there are 5 years old (or more) and
 probably not relevant anymore. I think we don't need to migrate the
 content from these.

 > Create a 'Mobile' support forum,  with 'levels'* for 'Android', 'iOS'
 and 'Other'.

 Having a unique forum for the mobile apps (Android and iOS) is fine.
 Having (iOS/Android/Other) levels would be great, but we can start without

 > Since these are A8c properties (all the apps are under them), and all
 support tools within the apps send users to WordPress.com, it was
 discussed a fair bit, and the final outcome as I recall was that we
 wouldn't migrate them within dotorg, if anything they'd be redirected off
 to .com instead.

 I think it should stay under wordpress.org, the apps are open source, we
 regularly post updates on https://make.wordpress.org/mobile/ and there are
 contributors not working at Automattic.
