Yes, but, to be clear, I don't think it's a huge effort, no more effort 
than the Incubator PMC puts in.  You should get regualar reports, read 
them, and make sure they demonstrate progress towards graduation and, if 
they don't, provide advice.

The Incubator has a checklist for graduation.  Lucy should make steady 
progress on these same steps.

Ideally the Lucy folks would be pro-active and directly pursue and 
document their progress towards these.  Failing that, the Lucene PMC 
must prod them.  If they consistently fail to respond to prods with 
demonstrated progress, then they should leave.  Or if the PMC is 
unwilling to monitor and prod they should leave.

In the past, we've seen good responses to prods.  So perhaps the vote is 
just whether the PMC is willing to keep prodding.
