Seems you hit the sweet spot pretty hard :-|

OK. I won't be doing this all by myself. But I don't want to see 
something we have been preparing for such a long time willingly ignored 
by this proposal.

So I would like to make a sub-proposal attached to this vote:

The dream of having its own hardware resources can be 
realized by working further on the foundations of 
I'm ready to see the proposed board being subsumed by the 
Cocoon PMC for that matter. Also, what we have set up as guidelines 
should be scrutinized and fleshed out further to bring in line with the 
new PMC's ideas. The main benefit of is that it has been 
set up with sufficient compartimentization in mind, both on a security 
and classloading level. So all these cocoon-based apps can be developed 
and showcased independently from each other. And that the machine is 
there and available, of course.

I'm all +1 for being a top-level project, of course. I 
sent you a mail suggesting to move forward with this 5 days ago.

But I would be very sad to see what we have been doing for 
going lost in the turmoil. Especially on my 32nd birthday :-|
