The term "subproject" doesn't mean a lot. There is only one PMC and
one set of committers and one dev list. It's not unusual for there to
be multiple lines of development for a product. We are doing that
right now with Action 1.2 and 1.3.x

When Action2 comes down from the incubator, it would make sense to me
to list it under frameworks, so the list would be Action1, Action2,
and Shale. I hadn't thought about it, but I expect that's what we
would have done anyway..

We did much the same during the 1.1 death march. There was a branch of
the site for 1.0 and another for 1.1. Later, we reverted to the usual
practice where the website reflects the head of the nightly build.
Likewise, we have full copies of the 1.2 websites posted too.

If Action1 continues to move forward, then, sure, people could
continue to update its area of the website. But, I think the best way
to think of Action1 and Action2 is just that: version 1.x and version
2.x. Action2 is the new and improved Action1. It's similar in a lot of
ways, and different in others ways, but 2.0 versions are often like
that. We *always* said that 2.x would be a revolution, and that's what
we got.
