I would suggest that as a way to maintain momentum, the Lucy devs setup a 
webpage akin to the incubator graduation checklist page, listing the 
current "state" of the community, and come up with a plan to post regular 
"Lucy Status" emails to general@lucene on some schedule. (21st of every 
month or something?)  The emails should mainly focus on (ie: lead with) 
progress on building the community (ie: new committers, growth in 
list traffic, releases, etc...) and can then summarize some of hte 
technical accomplishments in the past month.

Beyond just keeping up momentum and keeping everybody i nthe loop on 
Lucy's progress -- this would also help give Lucy some more visibility and 
ideally attract more contributors.
