Not entirely - if we choose to leave the history on codehaus there is  
no debate, no need to involve the incubator folks just fix wadi in  
the apache svn. Perhaps we could carry this discussion over to the  
cvs history thread?

Yes - the biggest being that changes have already been checked into  
the apache SVN particularly the m2 directory reworking which prevent  
the easy migration back to CVS. There are others but they are much  
more easily overcome. Again we should probably move this discussion  
over to the cvs history thread as there are several issues we need to  
nail down.

Its more than simply an AMQ module (one for 3 and one for 4) there  
are differences between ActiveCluster too between 1.2 and 1.3.

I don't see an easy way to an AMQ module. There are no interfaces  
between WADI and AMQ to allow that. Perhaps we could rework to be on  
ActiveCluster api's only but I still see that as a significant amount  
of work. If I'm wrong please elaborate.

I thought we had decided that we'd point to legacy archives and get  
the apache lists archived as well? Did I miss something?
