No, it's not.

I confess to being out of date on knowing the Commons website
generaton process, so someone else is going to have to deal with that
kind of question.

The ideal scenario would be to use "cvs delete" on all the sandbox
files, so that the original history is maintained there, but nobody
who checks out the sandbox (with "-dP" at least) will be bothered by
the files.

Additional items:

(7) Switch nightly builds to run from Commons Proper instead of sandbox.

    -- I switched as of tonight's run (20041126), but I'm
       still getting failures in the tests (can't start the server)
       that cause the overall "ant dist" build to fail.

(8) Adjust CVS access karma for any email committers that had access
      to the sandbox but not to Commons Proper.

    -- Please let me know if that applies to anyone here, and
       I will adjust the karma.  Graduating sandbox packages
       take their committers with them.
