Map proposal into current incubator template

  ## page was renamed from BSDCSProposal

+ == Abstract ==
+ 
+ == Proposal ==
+ 
+ == Background ==
+ 
  This proposal outlines the creation of a new, top-level Blue Sky Distant Collaboration Environment(BlueSky)
within the Apache Software Foundation.
+ 
+ BlueSky is both a set of flexible, extensible applications such as "Distance Collaboration
System", "Collaboration player", "Collaboration recording tool", "Resources Sharing and Management
Platform " and so on, designed by engineers and educators with years of experience in the
problem domain, as well as a framework that makes it possible to create new applications that
exist with others. 
  
  == Rationale ==
  
@@ -16, +24 @@

   * Increase public awareness of BlueSky and of the application of Apache licensing to business
application level software. Lately the news is full of companies that are using a dual-license
(GPL and commercial) model for enterprise software and BlueSky working with Apache opens an
opportunity to strengthen what we feel is a much higher value way of doing things for both
contributors and users. 
   * Help the project attract contributors and service providers to attract clients who would
feel more comfortable with the licensing coming through a well known and established organization
like Apache.

+ 
+ === Meritocracy ===
+ 
+ BlueSky was originally created by Qinghua Zheng and Jun Liu in September 2005. The BlueSky
development is being done at XJTU-IBM Open Technology and Application Joint Develop Center,
more than 20 developers are involved. The BlueSky community is a healthy meritocracy with
plenty of developers.
+ 
  
  === Community ===
  
  BlueSky has striven to foster a diverse community that is open to everyone. It is released
under a non-reciprocal license to encourage the maximum possible adoption by all potential
users and developers. The BlueSky community encourages suggestions and contributions from
any potential user and developers.

+ == Known Risks ==
+ === Orphaned Products ===
+ The initial committers have a long-term interest in use and maintenance of the code.  In
+ fact, there is a weekly development summary on this web site: http://www.p12.edu.cn/ (Currently,
only available in mainland of China).
+ === Inexperience with Open Source ===
+ The developers use a number of other open source projects within BlueSky, and are interested
in how best to make open source work with their project.
+ === Homogeneous Developers ===
+ === Reliance on Salaried Developers ===
+ === Relationships with Other Apache Projects ===
+ === An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===
+ The developers of BlueSky have been quite successful on their own and could continue on
that path with no problems at all. They are interested in joining the ASF in order to increase
their contacts and visibility in the open source world.
