I have a query as to what the STATUS file is supposed to represent. Is 
it supposed to be a 'this project is in position X', or is it supposed 
to be tightly linked with defining the exit criteria in the incubator?

I think it would be a good idea to collectively decide upon the exit 
criteria on the Wiki, then once a general consensus is formed migrate 
it from the Wiki into the CVS server for persistent storage (and 
tracking where we are in the project), including the transition 
criteria from incubator onwards.

I also think that it is highly desirable to have a release 
plan/schedule (in terms of features, rather than time) so that everyone 
working has an idea of where it is going. We could then have status 
reports to find out how far we're moving forwards, which would probably 
be of interest to others who are interested on how Geronimo is 
progressing, but without being involved in each of the different areas.
