One of the items about doing things The Apache Way is to build a
meritocratic community around a project, which it does not seem to be
what has happened with Click. As an example, see the activity in other
podlings before they graduated [1], and then compare with what Click
is showing [3] today.

+1,  I'd recommend to take this time on slowing down the "heads down
coding" part and concentrate in mentoring new members to contribute
and earn committer karma to the project.... and to expand the
community in general (users, etc) ...
