What makes you feel sad and dutiful?

I don't understand how Derby's participation and the projects that would
be embarked upon would differ whether Derby is at the top level or
within the ASF.

Since the ASF has already initialized a spot at code.google.com/soc ,
and since you have energy, I bet the ASF organizers would be absolutely
delighted for you to dive in and help coordinate.

I think the Derby project should be able to have a say in this.

I don't think there's anything "bad" or "unfair" about Derby being at
the top level. I just think it looks odd -- it makes Derby look somehow
isolated from the ASF instead of part of the community.
