I've updated the site with the comments from the previous thread. The
Process section reads:

   0. Prior to this the Apache Board has moved the oversight of the
project from its prior PMC to the Attic PMC.
   1. Indicate on websites that the project is in the Attic
   2. Make the SVN read only
   3. Inform user email list
   4. Consider killing user email list
   5. Kill the dev list
   6. README on archives for downloads
   7. Kill automated builds
   8. Retire in issue-trackers
   9. Remove from navigation

process (such as the 'if I fork on, what rules must I abide
