From #3177: "I made some concessions in GES so when bbPress 2 is used we defer to bbPress 2 for following a topic. It would be valuable to determine how many users are following topics at the moment. I think this is all recorded in a user meta option by GES."

I'm guessing this is used fairly rarely at the moment, but we will want to make sure that any current use is moved over. Since GES defers to bbPress 2.x, let's do the same. That means walking through existing Follows in usermeta and translating over to bbPress follows.

Assigning to myself, though I might reach out to Ray for help :)

In I introduce a migration script for moving GES topic subscriptions to bbPress.

bbPress doesn't have any concept of topic muting. On only about 10 occasions in the history of the Commons has a user muted a topic (and chances are great that these topics are no longer active anyway), so for the time being I think we're OK not to migrate this piece of functionality. If issues come up in the future, we can consider building it.

Sounds eminently reasonable.
