We need to evaluate the size of the contribution.  Jorg can you point us
over to the code repository for it?

We can easily accommodate this at some point considering the different
mechanisms available for bringing in new subprojects.  The Directory PMC has
to evaluate how to process this: i.e. does this need incubation or is it
small enough to constitute a simple contribution.

ODM sounds good.  I suck at names but I'll let it sit in my head to see if
any ideas come to mind.
