It worked like a charm, thanks.

New directory structure is available at [1], I'm waiting for the git
mirror as requeste by me to infra. All our repos will then have git

[1] http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/james/mailet/

I would like to rename maven artifacts so they are more consistent.
Don't have a strong preference but I like groupId:
org.apache.james.mailets  like the protocols groupId. I don't have a
strong opinion on this, so I'm ready to drop in case of complaints.

With regard to artifactId, I'm going with apache-mailets for the
parent pom (where we will define all the properties and dependency
management for mailets). apache-mailets-aggregator will aggregate all
the projects.

apache-mailets will have apache-james-project as parent. All other
mailet projects, including apache-mailets-aggregator, will be children
of apache-mailets.

As for the version changes, I plan to add numbers and dots so they
look like X.Y.Z. For example, apache-james-ai-project will have
0.0.1-SNAPSHOT instead of 0.1-SNAPSHOT. This is mainly to be
consistent and so we don't create confusion in OSGi realm.

Pull requests would be very nice but I think patches or github web
reviews will have to do until we get the basics.

Any help is appreciated,
