I personally do not care if we migrate the history. If we are
concerned that the data on tigris will someday disappear, I suppose we
could do it. I am against closing the users@ list on tigris after we
move. I think we should probably have a users list at Apache if other
projects do, but I do not think we should try to force anyone to
migrate from the current list.
