Sorry, I was overly precise. Some of our projects are in other GitHub
organizations and they'll be treated the same as the projects in the javaee
GitHub organization.

Sadly, we're not able to preserve the history when these projects are moving to
the Eclipse Foundation.

In general, the existing projects are supposed to be wrapping up their work as
much as possible and reaching a stable state to minimize the disruption when the
project is moved. After the project is moved, activity in the original
repository will stop, although the repository will remain available as a point
of reference.

If there's something we could do to make it easier to move over in-flight pull
requests, let us or the project leader know. We hope the Eclipse projects will
have much more involvement from the community so there may be more people able
and willing to help.
