CodePlex says "Bye Felicia"

If you've visited CodePlex recently, you may have noticed a message at the top that reads:

CodePlex is shutting down. Read about the shutdown plan, including archive and migration information, on Brian Harry's blog.

Here's a summary of the timeline, according to the link above:

March 31, 2017
Announcement of shutdown and disabled ability to create new CodePlex projects.
October 2017
CodePlex goes into read-only mode.
December 15, 2017
CodePlex shuts down completely.

I know that a lot of projects have already moved over to GitHub, and we at Identity Managed have been quietly transitioning over to Bitbucket, but there are still plenty of projects on CodePlex that should be migrated to a new host (ahem, FIM Query Tool!).
