I'm happy with the ASF being choosy. At the moment I can't tell choosy 
from 'refuse anything established externally' though, as this is the first 
project to go to the incubator and my first exposure to it.

Exactly. So shouldn't the existing 'community' decide?

Well, you'd be wrong :) I definitely don't understimate the people we 
already have, but know that there's a finite number of them and they can't 
possibly keep growing code and do a good job of maintaining and supporting 
it without extra resource.
