I was not intending that the two get tangled.
Either do the move before or after.

Just that when "legal delays" were mentioned,
i thought that there would be plenty of time.

Afterwards is fine by me. I was responding to the
infrastructure@a.o request to consider moving soon.

Apache Forrest was one of the early ones to move.
The transition was a breeze and we love it now.
We are mainly using the trunk, with small experimental
branches which we merge early. Different to xml-commons.
