The bulk conversion methods that I used (described in #4) were able to carry over most of the necessary structure and metadata from the old website. But some things that were in the original HTML pages did not survive the conversion process.
I'll divide these things into two categories:
Please report other things that appear to have gone away in the bulk conversion, so I can categorize them on the above lists. If things come up that can be carried over by tweaking our bulk conversion workflow, we should do that before making tweaks to individual markdown files that would be overwritten by the bulk conversion process.
Going to close this issue, per Skype conversation with editorial board, and open separate issues for things that need to be done.
