The ideal way would be to migrate stuff from HG to SVN. But I think 
anybody has understood in the meantime that this would result in data 
loss (history).

At Oracle we have separated the L10N stuff from the normal code to 
simplify things. We should continue this, so everybody can build the 
office like he/she wants without to be forced to integrate all 
languages. Mostly en-US is the most preferred one.

As Apache has only one repository for everything there is no question to 
split into separate ones. But we should store the L10N code in separate 

In apache-extras we should do an 1:1 transfer, so 1 repo for the code 
and 1 for L10N.

My 2 ct.
