Yes for strict naming convention.  No for restricting it to just
whiteboard_apacheid.

I would vote for a convention like: whiteboard_apacheid_projectname.  With
GitHub, we get unlimited amount of space and unlimited number of repos.
 There is no need to restrict ourselves to one repo per committer.  I dont
see any pros with restricting.

I can think of a scenario where a committer forks the flex-sdk (example:
whiteboard_bigosmallm_flex-sdk)  from the github mirror, make changes, get
some community involvement, etc.  When all pull requests are resolved, a
simple patch can be generated and applied to our Apache git repo.  This
workflow makes life so much easier.

Thanks,
Om
