*Sigh* I wish we'd just split the mailing lists, source code, and  
artifacts (jars, documentation) and left it in a single project.  
Basically, we should have set it up as:


It would certainly make it easier to deal with cross-project patches.

But, that said, I'm not wild about going through another cutoff where  
we lose all of our history in git. (Subversion tracks through the  
split but the svn to git gateway views them as new files.) I really  
wish we could just move to git for commits as well as for reads.

I'm also concerned about spinning for the sake of spinning. Doing more  
major code movement will cause more instability in trunk that I'm not  
sure is a good idea without clear goals and roadmaps.
