How would you compare it against Axion and/or Derby?

They've also offered their Daffodil Replicator technology, which does not
overlap with anything else we have, and which appears to be cross-DB, not
Daffodil specific.

The phrasing of:

does not sound like the kind of commitment we want to hear, and suggests
that they are still trying to decide whether or not they want to do this.

Yes, we do have Derby, and Axion is supposed to finally complete its move at
some point.  There is discussion currently in general@db.a.o regarding
&by=thread&from=871883.  At the moment, it appears that we'll wait pending
any decision from the DB PMC, and suggest that people interested in seeing
Daffodil's DB or Replicator at the ASF participate in the discussion on that
list.  If nothing comes out of the discussion there, then the Incubator PMC
can take up the matter.
