    Migration Assistant copied only files from my user account on the old Mac to my user account on my new Mac. That is what I wanted it to do.

    My Xcode projects are located in the "Xcode Projects" folder, which is in my Documents folder. Besides downloading Xcode, is there anything else I need to do?

    If you have developer Certificates in your earlier Macs Keychain, and Migration assistant didn't copy them over with keys, you may need to export them (with their private keys) from the first Mac and import them into the Keychain on the second Mac.

    What version of Xcode is the old machine using?

    I would also highly recommend looking into a version control system, like subversion or git, even if you are the only developer working on these projects.

    Thanks, guys! The project migration went without a hitch. I don't remember having to do anything extra. The keychains copied over.

    Man, that migration was easy.
