Hello Tetsuya,

I guess my concern is that [math] is primarily being built by individual 
contributors and not one specific group, its not one big code donation, 
Which is what I took the Incubator charter to mean by

"the Apache Incubator PMC be and hereby is responsible for the 
acceptance and oversight of new products submitted or proposed to become 
part of the Foundation".

Am I right/wrong?

thanks for the "cross pollination",
