Thanks to everyone who's commented on this thread. Looks like we've come up
with words that people are happy with but we shall hold off restarting the
vote till all the discussions around minimum diversity requirements reach
more consensus.

The latest words are:

"...establish a Project Management Committee charged with the creation
 and maintenance of open-source software for distribution at no charge
 to the public, that simplifies the development, deployment and management
 of distributed applications built as compositions of service components.
 These components may be implemented with a range of technologies and
 connected using a variety of communication protocols. This software will
 implement relevant open standards including, but not limited to, the
 SCA and SDO standards defined by the OASIS OpenCSA member section."
