Bottom line -- we've discussed a lot already and we'll be discussing a lot
more during incubation.

The NetBeans community is large and diverse. Some might have less of an
understanding of this process and its consequences than others.

That is not a problem because any services and any assumptions that Apache
is unable to meet can be carried by one or more organizations -- after due
discussion and legal handling etc with Apache -- from which one or more
individual contributors will come into Apache NetBeans.

There is a lot at stake on both ends, I think -- i.e., at the end of this
process Apache gets the NetBeans codebase, domains, trademarks, and
everything else. On the other end, NetBeans gets the home its always
wanted. It's a completely equal match and will work out for everyone to the
benefit of all.

There are several precarious sliding pieces though the end goal will unite
everything.
