Looks to be a good place.

I'm not sure about importing all history. I have provided an export in
the ip clearance.

Yes I'd like.

Currently we use jira ( I
can ask for an export.

I usually prefer jira :-) (but NP to use bugzilla if everybody prefers that)

Something similar to taglibs looks fine for me. As the web site is

IMHO the best is a separate components with own release cycle.
Note there will 2 modules/plugins : one for tomcat6 and one for tomcat7

No real preferences for this.

I can take care of this with asking infra @codehaus for the jira project.
Usually we move svn path to
And update the web site with the new location.
