and, stephen, as the director who proposed the incubator project, and is
on the incubator pmc, and participated in the board discussions involving
it, i tell you categorically that you are mistaken.  board resolutions
are not perfect by definition; in many cases they require refinement after
adoption, and define a minimum scope rather than a maximum one.

new code coming in to the asf comes through the incubator.  period.  that
has been stated several times.  you are capable of reading the archives
for the appropriate comments by myself, roy, and greg, et alia.  i
don't know whether any of the others had their directors' hats on when
they did, but i do right now: unless overruled by the board, i am stating
this officially as asf policy.  (even though i think it has been abundantly
stated before.)

the asf bylaws make no mention of 'subprojects'.  therefore a resolution
mentioning them would be problematic at best, and void at worst.

i do not regard this as productive discussion.  just about everyone else
seems to understand this.  in fact, i don't recall anyone else who has
put forth an opinion indicating that it didn't understand it.

if there are such people, please speak up no so we can resolve this once
and for all.  if no-one speaks up, stephen, i would appreciate it if you
would help us try to solve existing problems, rather than inventing new
ones.
