You're a legend.

My feeling (comfirmed I think by Nicola's e-mail)
is that the PMC will need to be comfortable as a
whole that the requirements have been met.

Mind you - If we have indicated we are are 
interested in taking the project "under our
wing", so to speak, then we should, as a group,
be monitoring the status of the incubation.  When
it comes to exit I would hope that it would
almost be a no-brainer.  If there are any issues,
they would have been raised during incubation.

My feeling is that Ted, given he has volunteered
to shepherd the project, would take on the role
of ensuring PMC requirements are being covered
off.  Ted may have a different thought though :>.

I'd be _very_ uncomfortable for the chair to make
a unilateral decision.  I see the chair as more of
a co-ordinator and facilitator than arbitrary
decision maker.
