It's not a "new" project.
They have imported the entire "wikitravel" site - at least several months ago.
It remains to be seen whether editors stay with wikitravel, move to wikivoyage or continue to edit both.
Whatever happens, their content will diverge; err, already has, as many of the edits made at wikitravel in the last 3 or 4 months have not been made at wikivoyage. However, the number of edits per day now being made at wikivoyage is far greater than had previously been made at wikitravel.
