We don't need to delete the old structure; but we will soon get to the
point where there is tooling that depends on the new structure being
in place.  Let's create the new structure for old podlings, given that
(if history is any guide) there are podlings that exist now that won't
be graduating for many years.

I'd also suggest that we consider reconciling this with how we capture
data for PMCs (currently FOAF).  Anything that makes podlings be
modeled as much as possible like prototype PMCs is a good thing.

My recommendation is to treat the YAML file as internal state, and
focus instead of providing a usable web interface to manage the
internal state.

10 minutes.

normal way to update this data a web interface, svn is reasonable as
an exception mechanism, IMHO.
