Skillset has never been discussed before IIRC, so that is a non-issue.

The Incubator PMC wants to see at least 3 active committers not
working for the same company. This is more than well met, and the
progress over the last year has been a good indicator, that once there
are things to scratch, people start getting involed. Good Stuff.

Yes, in general, there must be very special considerations (typically,
'real small codebase') for sub-projects in Apache nowadays. If you
follow which projects are created each month, you will see that a
large set are actually not from the Incubator, but spin-off
subprojects from Lucene, Hadoop and others...
