I expect that they'll be moved to their respective bug trackers.  I'm
not sure you'd want to integrate that with the Jira workflow since
that is something else that is pretty project-centric.

Though it pains me personally to say so, this is probably one
advantage to decoupling the drivers from Cassandra. If the
contributors to that particular project are less biased against Maven
then say, me, then it would be more likely to happen.

There must be something similar to Godwin's Law that states that as a
technical discussion grows longer, the probability that someone will
advocate Maven approaches one. :)

This was always the case, so yes.

Consensus seemed to be that Apache Extras (Google Code) would be
better from a branding perspective, and I don't think you can
structure projects like that there.

That said, I'm sure there will be folks that contribute to more than
one, but I'm guessing that as the number of drivers and overall
contributors increase, those people will be the exception rather than
the rule (i.e. I'm not sure it makes sense to optimize for them).
