Nicola Ken appears to have decided that the Incubator will incubate only
projects intended for TLP status, and is otherwise a recording service for
other PMCs to use.  In that model, it would be the Cocoon PMC's
responsibility to incubate the Lenya Community, and to record the IP issues
in the Incubator.  I am concerned that this relinquishes the oversight role,
although I agree that when a project is expected to merge into an existing
TLP, we need a more collaborative and streamlined relationship with the
existing community.

Would you please share both the Board's intent for the Incubator (at least
to refresh everyone's mind, and to inform those who haven't read the
archives), and your vision?
