One of my Google Page Creator sites has now finally been moved to Google Sites. If you have a Google Page and Site with the same name, they add a "2" to the end of the address.

I had 3 sites on Page Creator and so far only one of them has been moved to Sites.

Interestingly although .exe files can't be uploaded to Sites, they have been successfully migrated over from my old Pages account :/

The migration has been completed for two of my five Google Page Creator sites too. Had you not have posted this, I wouldn't have noticed since they don't seem to have emailed site owners, which is a little odd.

It seems you can edit the Google Page Creator site redirect URL to point to a site other than the one created in Google Sites by the migration, but only after the migration has taken place. It would be more sensible if they allowed this before the migration.

Edit: It seems you can setup a redirect URL if you opt out of the migration too. (I should learn to read their instructions...)

I just noticed that Google Pages migrated my javascripts and html files too, i thought GSites don't.
