I think the Incubator needs to know a bit more background around the Wicket 

1. When Wicket came to Incubator, I got the idea that 1.x was for bug fixes 
and 2.0 is the new incompatible trunk for development at ASF.

2. The 2.0 development is hitting major resistence, for more factors than just 
change of package names to org.apache.wicket.

3. 2.0 development is sort of cancelled, and work is starting to back port 
most features in 2.0 to the 1.x lineage.

Now, what is happening to the org.apache.wicket naming requirement of classes? 
This release request is still using "package wicket.*". How do you plan to 
handle this, to satisfy both the Incubator namespace requirement and users 
being upset over incompatibilities?
