As I understand what is being said, a project is to have a sponsor who is an
ASF Member or Officer.  Note that the Incubator PMC Chair is an ASF Officer,
as is every PMC Chair.  But as far as I am concerned, the more ASF Community
members people who are co-sponsoring/supporting a project the better.  I
don't know about you, but I feel a lot better seeing a good list of names
associated with a project intended for incubation.

In any event, let's let the Incubator PMC get their new Chair in place,
which needs to be done ASAP, let them formalize the policies that are
consolidating, and let's get the pending podlings into incubation.
