Chen, as Joe points out, these are what BlueSky should have been doing for
the past three (3) years, and yet we still here a proposal for the future.

Again, as Joe points out, ALL of BlueSky development should been done via
the ASF infrastructure, not periodically synchronized.  We are a development
community, not a remote archive.

Joe, again, has this on the money.  The BlueSky project must immediately
make significant strides to rectify these issues.  Now, not later.

We should see:

  1) All current code in the ASF repository.
  2) All development via ASF accounts (get the rest of the people signed
  3) Ddevelopment discussion on the mailing list.
  4) All licensing issues cleaned up.
