Absolutely -1: The first time I ever saw any of this topic was

you want to have a vote on it? You've GOT to be kidding.

Also, how is it that a project under incubation can start sucking in
more projects?? The idea of incubation is that the project is still not
a part of Apache and hasn't quite become a meritocracy etc.. 

The way this particular potential donation has been handled proves
without a shadow of a doubt that this project (ServiceMix) is not
running The Apache Way.
