>From the sponsoring PMC point of view, they are two options that I see:

1) Write up a proposal, submit it to general@incubator, get told that

2) Inform Incubator that code ABC is software granted and they plan to
commit it within T time period.

I'm in favour of the latter. Took me 3 months to get to a point where
I grokked that :)
