There are a few things, like sites, that have settings that contain a sandbox specific user name that blocks promotion of the object into another sandbox/org. Is there any way around this. It would be nice to not have to manually create the site because the user name won't promote. Also, when I set the permissions for a site, it would be nice to have them promote as well.
Is there a way to work around these things or a better way to promote them than using Eclipse? Especially since support for Eclipse is rumored to be waning.
