There isn't a migration path to other sites because we don't have much questions that need to be migrated to other sites. Considering the rejected migrations (migrated questions that are then closed in the receiving site), those numbers are even lower. For the past 90 days, the numbers are the following. Stack Overflow: 15 (1 rejected) Server Fault: 2 (2 ...

Even mods basically never migrate questions, it's very rarely a useful thing to do. If people still manage to post off topic recommendation questions that you think can be answered elsewhere, just ...

Instead of migrating them away, most of these questions could be made on-topic with a little bit of rephrasing. At best resulting in answers that both A) recommend modules to have a look at and B) explain how the problem could be solved programmatically. Win-win. We won't get B) when migrating them away.
