Martin Sebor commented on INCUBATOR-10:

who our sponsor was -- see the thread at

> "Approval by a Sponsor will generally occur only after a vote within the Entity, and
will require that the Entity be convinced that the Candidate is appropriate for Incubation.
A Sponsor may be one of:
>     * the Board of the Apache Software Foundation;
>     * a Top Level Project (TLP) within the Apache Software Foundation (where the TLP
considers the Candidate to be a suitable sub-project); or
>     * the Incubator PMC."
> Although in practice it appears that the Incubator PMC is the preferred sponsor for projects
that would end up a TLP.  The site could say something like this:
> Where a top level project is not an appropriate sponsor, the Incubator PMC is the preferred
sponsor.  Requests should be sent to the general (AT) mailing list.
