Ditto.  I wish more of the pushback identified specific questions that
were over the top or overkill.  I can honestly say that I didn't find
any.  Some (like the licensing questions) may need to be tweaked over
time (e.g., I personally am aware of a number of projects with non
optional dependency on a JDK), but that can be worked over time.

In particular, this document isn't a "metric", is is more of a
checklist, with common sense things like "is the code open source, are
dependencies OK, have you made releases, is voting working smoothly,
is the community interdependent of external influences".  Nor are the
questions pass/fail.

While this is indeed an all volunteer organization, I will submit that
those that vote on graduation matters and those that vote on Establish
resolutions are also volunteers; and making this information available
at the times of those votes will save a considerable amount of
volunteer effort.
