Currently the plan is to leave both the old websites & docs will at the 
old locations. And XFire will be making release until Celtixfire 
releases a .0 release. I think Celtix will probably make some 1.x or 
1.0.x releases as well.

Is this official policy? Or do we just need to come to some consensus as 
to whether or not this will be confusing for our users?
