Many on this site have been cautious fans of Wikitravel in recent times, with it being run by Internet Brands. With the lawsuits between them and Wikimedia, and the impending fork to Wikivoyage, can someone familiar with the projects provide some insight as to what will happen to the respective sites? It's something that we on stackexchange sites should follow with a keen interest, given the community-generated content, and especially so on travel.se, as these are the sites we'll choose to support and use...
Here's the short answer:
So basically Wikitravel's community and content are migrating to Wikimedia's new site, and Wikivoyage is only a temporary stepping stone until the servers etc are ready.
Wikitravel.org the site will keep running for some time, but with no contributors the content will either rot and fill up with spam, or get locked down and age into uselessness.
