I assume we'd all get to see the code under an Apache License before 
deciding to accept.  How else could we vote it in?


I'll go out on a limb here :

> [X] -1 I object because: .......

... I think that a BPEL engine is something that spans many of the WS 
and SOA oriented projects at the ASF, such as ServiceMix, Tuscany, 
Synapse, Agila, etc...

However, that's not my main reason, because honestly, if I was the only 
one that cared about that, I wouldn't ever attempt to stand in the way 
of people wanting to do cool things.

However, this proposal has sent up far too many red flags, has alienated 
too many people, and is causing too much of a bad feeling in people, for 
ServiceMix, for Geronimo and for the ASF in general.

I'd suggest you make a big effort to cool things down and get a broad 
conversation going, over at general@incubator, drive to consensus, and 
then regroup and try again.
