We need to deal with the negative aspects of the peanut gallery issue, but
we also need to provide oversight and positive, beneficial, guidance.  As
you say, unlike Subversion, this project doesn't have any existing ASF

In addition to Greg's structural partitioning, perhaps we need to work on
Incubation Etiquette, and get people to voluntarily stop doing drive-bys?
