I dunno - its been too long since I've had to deal with C/C++.  The ASF
looks for a release of source code, convenience binaries are not required.
If your main issue is a build system, I would include the ability to run
all three you've listed (if possible - though it should be) allowing users
to compile themselves.

Your lack of mentors is probably the biggest issue on the incubator side.
Without mentors, you have no one to steer you through graduation.  Though
Marvin raises a good point - you're coming from an existing TLP, not only
would incubation be optional if the logging TLP chose to bring you in, but
having the backing of logging likely means there are other existing members
out there that can help you through incubation.
