+1 These would be good to look at, in addition to the specific ones
that Tetsuya already suggested.

Yes - still just collecting notes and links on the Wiki; I'm sure some
actual sentences would be more helpful -- sorry that's not ready yet.

Here's my $0.02 on two other issues (one cent each):
- In reading the email you wrote to Brian, I felt like you were saying
that there probably weren't any IP entanglements, but that it was under
the radar enough not to matter anyway.  Personally, I think you should
do whatever is necessary to ensure Sun has no claims at all.  The thing
with Apache is that we want to make sure that when some other 
organization wants to adopt an ASF product, they should feel confident
that everything they get strictly complies with the Apache Software 
License.  "Under the radar" isn't enough to make most organizations
continue to trust the Apache brand.

- You mentioned in a prior post that XNode may have broader application
than Xindice, and therefore may be a TLP.  You missed the step in 
between: being a separate subproject of the XML project.  If this
sounds reasonable to you, I would post to the general list at 
xml.apache.org.  

Good luck!

Cliff
