It looks like community building is going slowly with Concerted.  This is
understandable as a part-time activity.

Would it be simpler and better for the project to build a community outside
Apache and bring the project back for incubation once you have done so?
That would allow you considerable freedom from restrictions that an
incubating project cannot have. That freedom might make it easier to bring
people in.  A number of Apache projects have started outside, built
momentum and then become Apache (see Storm or even, in some sense, httpd as
examples). Very few have started inside and built from zero (Apache Drill
is the only one I know of personally).

What do you think?
