How about this:

RESOLVED, that the Apache !HttpComponents Project will not create new
applications, but only '''adopt existing efforts''' at Apache to develop
applications based on the components and wishing to join the Apache
!HttpComponents Project, '''excluding''' efforts to implement
'''standardized server-side containers''' such as a Servlet or Portlet
container; and be it further

Maybe we can also drop "to develop applications". The "excluding..."
stuff is not really necessary, but I'd leave it in as a courtesy to
the folks who had concerns about the creation of the HttpComponents
subproject at the time.

This explicit restriction should not only help to shape our scope,
but also protects us from questions like "you promised us applications,
where are they?" ;-)
