Whoa. I had understood this as "incoming external projects" instead of
any in-bred ones. 

So by your (and Jim's) interpretation, we did Axis2 wrong?? We started
that with people who were Axis committers and started with no external
code contrib from anyone. We didn't go thru the incubator - just created
an SVN tree and started hacking. 

Are you guys saying that that was wrong and that the incubator had to
get involved to teach us the Apache way? Huh?

Can we get board clarification on this please? Reading the above
resolution that is by no means clear, at least to me.
