I have two concerns about http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/BlueSky:

I think we need a committment from the BlueSky team that all
information and artifacts related to the project will be available
worldwide. I know nothing about how things work in China in this
respect, but having parts of the project segregated is not acceptable,
IMHO. That might make some community members second-class citizens if
they don't have access to everything.

In the same vein, we need to make it very clear that all
project-related communications have to happen in english on the ASF
mailing lists and websites. I don't think the ASF would be able to
provide the necessary oversight for anything happening in Chinese,
just as we don't support other languages at the moment.

Sorry if I sound negative, I agree that the goals of the project are
important, but I also see a risk of creating a project that might live
on its own island, with very little ties to the rest of the ASF. I'm
not saying it's impossible, but IMHO we have to make sure that the
necessary agreements are in place before going further.
