Monday, October 26, 2009 6:02 AMDoes the new package based import export include workflows and alerts? With powershell or the Central admin UI?
Thursday, October 29, 2009 9:26 PMWorkflows will not be imported/exported. I'll confirm on Alerts ASAP.
Thursday, October 29, 2009 10:04 PMI am disappointed that the list workflows will not be part of the export/import process yet. It makes site level migration (with SPD created workflows) very difficult and almost infeasiblt.
I had heard that there were going to be some "Site level workflow" type of configuration. I am sorry I only heard this second hand and was waiting to get more information. Does this same "not part of export" apply to those also?
Thursday, October 29, 2009 10:11 PMOn SPD-based import/export I'll need to confirm; however, CA and Windows PowerShell do not handle Workflows in import/export.
Thursday, October 29, 2009 10:11 PMYes, there are site workflows that are activated by the Site Actions button and are not bound to a list/library or items. In 2007, exports, backups, and site template copies all included the workflows and allowed us to move SPD workflows without rebuilding. I'm surprised to hear that the new packaging does not.

Thursday, November 26, 2009 9:54 AMJoel, Channel9 has an awesome video demonstrating exporting a Workflow and importing it into Visual Studio. It also has a demonstration of saving a Site as a Template (WSP) and importing this also into Visual Studio. This was done by Saaid Khan (Program Manager, Visual Studio) interviewed by Beth Massi . It's a great webcast and covers a lot in 17 mins ;-)
This is an area close to my heart in SharePoint world because of the work I did with SPSource. I'm just trying to see whether there is still a gap and requirement for SPSource based on these two new #VS2010 functions which are going to be awesome for the community! Great work by the team.
I will shortly be doing a review (& webcast) of what it can and can't do on the SharePointDevWiki.com.
