and tags.  Kind of “start” at the graduation.  Maybe a bit before at the 2.0-incubator
release.   Or at least all the “lib” dirs out of them.   That would chop about 100MB out
of the .git directory making it a LOT smaller.   The original codebase kept .jar files in
the repo which sucks with git.   I’m really not sure how much of the history and tags from
2005/2006 is at all important anymore so this is likely not a big deal.   Plus, the history
is still in SVN if we really need it.
+1 on pruning the incubator stuff and the old libs.

Who is going to process pull requests? you? (really just to know which 
process is being adopted)
