One could also say that this happened, in a sense, with the 0.x->1.0
transition in the httpd project, with Robert Thau creating an internal
fork while other folks were working on the 0.x branch. Or, more
accurately, the switch from 0.7.x to 0.8.8. It had a different name
internally, and the projects switched over to the new code at some
point, and it assumed the name of the main project.

Yes, I am still working on the history.apache.org project, even though
it has been silent for a LONG time. ;-)
