might still be a good idea to be sponsored by the db project but with
the aim to graduate as a TLP (rather than a sub-project).

things sometimes get a little heated over on the incubator general list
and some of the process is still being talked out so it might be best to
do a little preparation first. IMHO subscribing first and posting later
(after acclimatization) is probably a good idea.

a proposal describing cayenne and it's aims is needed and is probably
best written up first. might seem like a paper exercise but this is
actually a good chance for the community to take a chance to step back
and think about where the project's going and what it's long term aims
are. there's likely to be a measure of criticism once the proposal is
posted but this should be taken positively - it's aim is to improve the

it's also worth reading what information is available on the apache
(http://www.apache.org) and incubator (http://incubator.apache.org)
sites. some of legal formalities required by the ASF might need to a
little discussion amongst the cayenne community. 

but don't be afraid of asking any questions on the incubator list: the
folks on the list will be able to give better answers than me...
