Good point - so maybe follow the advice from Niclas and incubate 1.3  
as well. Seems like you are in a good position to do that. I don't  
see it being released yet through SourceForge at all, so changing all  
package names to Apache is a fair game.

BTW, in Cayenne we migrated the entire repository to Apache SVN, with  
all past release history. Same for the mailing lists - just keep a  
single set in the incubator. The only piece that will be handled  
differently is packaging and distributing a release (SourceForge for  
un-incubated stuff; Apache - for the rest). This way you won't  
fracture the community and reduce the maintenance work.

That's understandable, and yet another reason to consolidate as much  
as possible.
