OK, well I had a discussion last night with some folks from the incubator
PMC and frankly it upset me. It was one of those evenings when you realise
how crap organisations can be and makes you wonder why you bother with them
:( I really wasn't impressed.

In fact to give you an idea, the overriding suggestion that came out was
(paraphrased) "go to sourceforge and when you have a community and code then
we'll think about adding you to the incubator".

So, basically that's the only option that the esteemed ASF incubuator
project appears to offer.

I'd suggest therefore that you take the discussion back to JG and work on it
there as at least you seem to have some peope who are interested in it there

I wish I could bring myself to be more enthusiastic, but I really don't see
the point of having the incubator at this moment in time.

> David - sorry - my intention wasn't to invite people to Jakarta General
from here, but to see where it should be moved, somewhere "above" JG, as
indicated by the discussions there.  If this is to possibly become a
top-level Apache project, where should it be discussed?  (Up to now, I've
primarily been following Jakarta discussions, since that's the only code
I've contributed to so far).

everyone.  If we are to keep the discussion on a list that is open to
everyone, where would that be?
