Eric,

I don't feel that your reply is fair. I am not 'lowering the bar' to
the eventual creation of a TLP that makes official Apache releases. I
am proposing, if you will excuse the metaphor, to create a less steep
ramp that approaches that bar. Right now, we say 'go away until you
have a substantial community.' I'm proposing a means of capturing
these nacent communities.
