Yes, that is the case.  Without Incubator in place Tapestry would no
doubt already be absorbed by Jakarta.  Personally I would say that would
have been a bad thing, since the Jakarta PMC is overloaded as it is.

So, now we are here, Tapestry is considered for incubation.  We've kept
them hanging in limbo for far too long... apologies for that.  Now it is
time for action.  And some of us have some questions we'd like to see
answered by the Tapestry folk.

It would be nice to hear from the Tapestry developers themselves on what
they expect to gain from becoming an ASF project.
