Subject Re: Moving to the ASF github organization

Following standard Apache processes should be a goal.  However, we need
to fix our apache/jclouds permissions to even match the existing
jclouds/jclouds workflow.  I could not close a pull request here:


Could we move incrementally, experimenting with the new workflow with
the most active committers and contributors, before cutting the cord on
the old workflow?
