Perhaps one approach the podling could take at the guidance of its
mentors is to create accounts on demand. I.e. first order of business
is getting basic infrastructure up (I think everyone is looking
forward to having traffic on general@incubator back to normal -:) ),
next up is getting the initial code import. Next after that you start
adding in the people that have sent in CLAs and are wanting to touch
the code/website/etc. That's what harmony did. It helped the project
get into a mode of voting in new people frequently, and it also helped
make visible to the project that it was ok if you didn't show up on
day 0.

cheers...

Leo
