It is IP cleared.

One of my sister projects to be imported currently uses Hibernate (LGPL) 
which needs to be removed as a dependency; this was identified in the

The codebases being imported currently live on SourceForge, so are 
already public.

Mark's suggestion (Mark is our champion) to import this stuff into a 
different area than trunk seemed reasonable to us, for two reasons:
1) It helps us separate out code with a non-ASF licensed dependencies.
2) It also lets us make sure we get things like imports and class 
renames sorted out before we move it into trunk.  One of the conditions 
from Naked Objects Group Ltd (who've granted an CCLA for this code) is 
that the product is no longer called "Naked Objects"; that means 
removing all references to "NakedObject" in the codebase (eg 
NakedObjectException -> IsisException).

Long term, I don't myself see any reason per se to mark that area 
private, other than to avoid confusion from anyone informally browsing 
the SVN repo and wondering which is the main trunk.  But I think Mark 
has also responded to your point.
