The question https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6006916/unable-to-install-imagemagick-unmet-dependencies was closed as "Off topic" without being migrated.
As the closer in question was Jeff Atwood, I'm guessing that the close was the correct action, and I'm just learning the logic behind it.
If "How do I install this programming library?" is off-topic for Stack Overflow, then presumably it should be treated as a "How do I install X?" question. I assume that "How do I install X?" would be within the scope of at least Super User (if not Server Fault or Ask Ubuntu).
It's possible that the question was a bad question, and Jeff opposes migrating bad questions. But if that's the case, shouldn't it have been closed as "Not A Real Question"?
Where's my reasoning going wrong?
