Hi David,

I think everything is on track, though it will obviously take some time to ramp up.

From the incubator perspective, the things that need doing are captured in the status file:
http://incubator.apache.org/projects/cloudstack.html

I know you've already identified a list of resources to get migrated to the ASF and working
through it, and obviously a lot of things can't happen until the code is signed off and loaded
up.

Other than that, the discussions being had about releases and responsibilities (and how they
fit within the Apache governance model) are good ones to have up front. I'd encourage someone
drive those towards a conclusion in a way everyone agrees with.

The other thing to keep in mind is that another report is due in about a week - it might be
good to start working on that collectively and capture some of the current status that way.

IMO it would be great if, by the third report before quarterly reporting kicks in, the podling
feels like it has "fully arrived", and has assembled a list of things necessary to a) release,
and b) graduate (even if they might require some time to achieve).

Cheers,
Brett
