-      Comments: As project already exists in the public, this incubation is about moving
the development over without stopping the momentum of the project, and then learning about
the Apache development processes. Previous conversations were Slack/GitHub-issue based, so
making decisions on the email list will be the first likely adaptation. A dependency on ZeroMQ
will be the primary discussion point for a first release at Apache.  PPMC list is still low
on subscriptions, with less than half of the PPMC members subscribed.
