Doh! I learn something new about git every day. My assumption all along was that the contents
of the repository were to be copied, leaving the old repository/web-pages/releases intact.

Larger discussion: Is there a reason for projects coming into incubation to have the old repository
moved (i.e. renamed) instead of being copied? I cannot think of a good use case for moving
versus copying. Seems like any project that had releases and a community outside Apache would
want to copy, not move.

Smaller discussion: Should the JIRA have been written to request copying/forking the project?
Or is this something that is supposed to be self-serve. I could not find a definitive answer
to this.
