I'll update the ftpserver.xml to reflect what has happened (AFAIK), but 
roughly;

FtpServer is probably now the oldest incubating project, and come here at the 
very beginning (IIRC) of Incubator existence. The project originated in 
Avalon, but didn't really belong there, hence moved here.
So, there has never been any software grants and such to deal with. 

The project was dormant (incl no active Mentor, no PPMC) for a long time, 
until Niklas Gustavsson and Sergey Vladimirov started to revive the codebase 
and community. The codebase was moved to use the high-performant MINA network 
layer, and that created the "natural home" aspect.

I came in as a Mentor about 6 months ago, and try to fill in the missing gaps; 
establish a PPMC, grow the community to 3 committers and official secure a 
new home.

So, IMHO FtpServer has met graduation criteria. More importantly, we have a 
PMC willing to take over the responsibility of a encumberance-free codebase.
