  You've been waiting over a year for a project announced April 2011 (9 
months ago) ?  [How oblivious was I to the project in those early days?]

  I expect Spoon will be more than coding.  In fact I think Spoon (as an 
organization) will have no say in code now that Apache is in the picture.

   I have not seen Michael doing anything "Dictatorish" in the Apache 
project.  In fact he's been surprisingly silent considering the amount 
of traffic on this list.

  That said; from an outsider it has appeared Spoon does not have their 
"act together" yet.  It took a few months after filling out the 
volunteer form before I heard anything back; inviting me to three diff 
mailing lists.  One I never heard anything from; one I was told was no 
longer used and the third has seen almost no traffic.

  But, it is what it is.
