Um... a fork of an existing OSGeo project applying for graduation. Not 
sure what to think about that. Forks are part of our reality and I have 
no problem with that, but I'm not sure that OSGeo can stand behind two 
forks of the same project.

The history page is an interesting read, but I still don't get a clear 
idea of what's happening exactly and what to think about both GeoToolkit 
vs GeoTools:


It would perhaps be interesting to hear what the GeoTools PMC members 
have to say about this fork... hear their side of the story.
