It should be donate to APACHE. The various people can come to it.

To be frank, some communities can bias against newcomers. That isn't
right for the ASF, and it *absolutely* is not write for podling
communities within the Incubator.

This doesn't apply to just BPEL. I had the same reaction to the recent
Ajax proposals. "oh, sure, Dojo can come and join this new community."
Right. They'll feel like outsiders right from the start. "Euh. We have
some code? Yah, I know you have some, but will you look at ours?" Bah.

This isn't about control, this is about inclusivity. Targeting one
group of folks ("... to the service-mix community ...") over another
is exclusion, not inclusion.

Cheers,
