And even after we had graduated. Wicket 1.2.7 (the final maintenance
release for the 1.2 branch) was created in last March. We didn't use
the Apache mirroring system and put a disclaimer in it that the
release was non-Apache. [1]

This is a service we provide for our users that were with us before we
moved to apache and are counting on us to provide support on their
production systems. However, since we are a volunteer effort with
limited resources, we have discontinued to support the 1.2 branch
(though we will act on security issues) and now focus on Apache
software :).

Yep, and it really is a problem IMO when incoming *open source*
projects have to ditch their collected history. If we care about code
provenance, having the full history available is best.
