Indeed, this whole process is merely coming up with a well-thought out
document that we hope helps people who are interested in it.  As I see
this, it's not any explicit process burden for podlings or TLPs (or
pTLPs, if we ever have them).

The board and project reporting schedules, and the list of minimal
project requirements are what Apache projects do have to follow/do/be.

As always, it will be good to put some concise yet clear explanations
and links between the different documents.
