It seems that there has been some sort of policy against full history
imports of code bases to the Incubator and that the matter is
currently being discussed over on general@incubator. I encourage those
of you interested in continuing forward with this task to follow this
discussion and to await the outcome before importing the full history.
IOW, I advise holding off the voting or progression forward on this
task based on the outcome of the discussion. Below is a link to the
entire discussion thread:
