Subject Re: River-261, namespace change

Just a few thoughts on the process...

In order to graduate, River needs to have a community of committers  
who know how to design, build, test, and release code "the Apache  
way". So there are both building code and growing the community  
activities to accomplish.

Seems to me that getting a reasonable AR2 shipped is priority 1,  
followed by migrating the package names, and building a release.next  
that has the Apache branding (package naming, documentation).

So let's focus on what's needed for AR2 including getting "patches  
that have not been committed yet" into the repository.
