Let me give a quick example of how this can work. Apache Tiles used to
be a subproject of the Apache Struts project. Someone decided it was
better as a standalone project so they forked it to the Struts
sandbox. Work continued there by multiple people until Tiles was
completely separated from Struts. So Apache Tiles became a top-level
project (TLP) in its own right. The code from the Struts sandbox
became the trunk of Tiles.

Over time the code stabilized and releases were made. Eventually
commiters started thinking about revolutionary changes to Tiles. They
forked the codebase to the Tiles sandbox and went to work. Eventually
that work became stable enough that we moved it to trunk and it is now
the main development line of the Tiles project. Eventually a Tiles 3
version will be released from it.

If you have the gumption to do it you can see the entire history of
this by looking at Subversion logs. It all happened in the public
Subversion repo.
