Actually, that's what we did.

We published it since quite some time under

(it's still there BTW, I'm removing it in CVS now to avoid confusion) 
and told the list to take a look.

Then asked to switch ASAP, the PMC also told 
we needed to change soon to the board, and I got messages telling me to 
do it.

I gave a warning, updated CVS, told all to check, and waited.
When a problem came, I fixed it.

I know that the site is not yet all Forrest made, but we don't have the 
power to impose it.
I've been lobbying some other projects in their own lists for months al 
alone, and cannot wait another year till they feel they have time, nor I 
can be on all lists.

Some projects have been very active on it: FOP is nearly ready, XIndice 
is happily getting ready, and Cocoon gotta wake up some time now.

They'll get going faster now if they want the same look.
