Not necessarily.  There are simple technical solutions for this problem:

- Copy, don't move, at least the ext_sources/ tree of the repository.   
The incubator copy can be deleted on our next release.

- Use an SVN link to keep the old incubator URL for ext_sources/ alive 
until the next release.

- Wait with the transition of the repository until the next release.


Independently from this problem, it might be a good idea to have a 
transition phase after graduation during which both URLs are valid.
