Every single one of us here shares that *expectation*. What this
thread fails to address is a *practically* mechanism for that
expectation to be met.

After re-reading what Chris and Benson wrote, personally I'm
convinced that this is, in part, because IPMC is just not
incentivised to solve this problem. Just like if developers
on an ASF project are not incentivised to work on a particular
feature -- there will be no code, regardless of the ammount
of email traffic and JIRA "tracking".

I'll start a separate thread on this in the final [futile] attempt
to move the needle on what a better, more responsible version
of the incubation process should be offer.
