Today, I noticed a question that was placed [on hold] (as the new pre-cursor to being closed), with as reason
put on hold as off-topic by Oded♦ 1 hour ago
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
"Questions about specific programming problems encountered while writing code are off-topic, but can be asked on Stack Overflow." – Oded
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question or leave a comment.
Previously, such questions would be migrated to their target site (SO in this case) immediately after sufficient votes were cast.
But with the new close system in place, it seems that migrations also go through some probation period. Is that intentional, and how long is that period? A five day probation period, like for closing a question, before a question gets migrated to another site seems like an awfully long period, during which it is likely that the OP will re-ask the question on the other site, leading to needless duplications.
