David,

Thanks for the feedback.

I am collecting info needed for account requests as we speak. The CCLA
is expected 'any day now'....

I'll try to ensure that the STATUS page reflects reality, but
seriously; It is a pain in the but compared to a JIRA issue. Also, it
shouldn't be the "public front piece", IMHO, it should be
http://incubator.apache.org/etch that serves that purpose and STATUS
is mainly an Incubator artifact for our process purposes.

As for 'status' being dismysal state, give us a break ;o) We have only
had 5-6 weeks since the VOTE...

Cheers
Niclas
