it hasn't been accepted, at least not by the incubator.  oh,
you mean the sponsoring project.  all i can say is what i was told
by sam, which i've already done.

greg, i'm on neither of those lists.  i took sam at his word.
and he is apparently offline for a few days and unable to respond.
he told me davinum ex officio web services was ready for it to
come to ws; not being on that list, i had to accept that, too --
but i also cc'd sam and davinum on the mail to clarify anything
i screwed up.

it will be.  that's what i meant by 'safe licensing'.

fair enough.

miscommunication, is all.  i assumed from what i was told that
everything was done and the actual incubation inception was become
the bottleneck.  sam and davinum can respond, and i'll ask richard
jacob (from the wsrp4j team) to join the list here.

i don't know about anyone else, but *i'm* certainly trying to have
this be as open as possible, and move as swiftly as possible.  the
former is more important than the latter, though.
