Well, I should note that the "Brought to you by" line is actually
automatically generated from the project permissions, so there is little
chance of it getting out of date.  That said, it will be more useful as we
move more of the Allura work (specifically, ticket activity) over from the
old SourceForge location to the Apache hosted Allura instance, as is the
plan.

I have updated the page at https://forge-allura.apache.org/p/allura/ to
include the ASF feather logo which links to
http://www.apache.org/foundation/

This has been raised before and some things have been done to improve the
tracker notifications on the mailing list (combining status change and
comment notifications, fixing threading, etc) and it was decided at the
time that it was reasonable to continue to include that traffic (with
improvements) on the list.  However, I believe the possibility of splitting
it in the future was left open, should anyone continue to feel it was a
problem.

Still, this doesn't seem to me like something that should block graduation,
as the tracker communications are indeed related to Allura development.
