Who is "we"? If "we" is a group of Struts committers, why would "we"
take the code somewhere else, rather than working on it where it is
now? If "we" isn't Struts committers, then they can take the code and
do what they will with it, under the terms of the Apache License.

The caveat in the latter case is if there is an intent to bring the
code back to the ASF later. In that case, there just needs to be an
assurance of code provenance when it comes back (e.g. an iCLA
mechanism), and then it would need to go through a software grant or
some such process to bring it back in.

Before someone goes off and creates a separate project, though, it'd
be interesting to hear why we think contributors will appear if the
project is elsewhere, when they have not done so here for the last
several years. (Or am I mistaken and we do have patches attached that
are not being applied?)
