I don't know off-hand, so I'll ask you: isn't hsqldb's license BSD-style?
What makes it incompatible?

Why is hsqldb required to compile the code?  Is the code not using JDBC?

I'd suggest google and trademark databases.

The project's STATUS file
(http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/incubator/site/projects/jaxme.cwiki),
which needs updating.

> *When* do I check?

As soon as you can.

Does any one organization control the project?  How diverse is the
community?

> * Demonstrate ability to tolerate and resolve conflict within the
community.

Conflict != tantrum.  :-)  Has there never been a disagreement, a debate
over something?

> * Developers tied into ASF PGP web of trust

Have the developers generated PGP keys and started to get signed into the
web of trust?

>  I do not know what is required to conform to this part.

Don't feel badly.  :-)  This is something we're trying to work out
throughout the ASF, and we recognize that not everyone is conveniently
located to each other.

Speaking of the record, the status file is the place to record such things.
:-)

Sounds good all around, from what you are saying.  Dims, who has
participated in your project, will have the best idea.
