Hello Cliff,

Yes, you're right. Aspect# and DynamicProxy discussions happens on 
users mailing list:
Not heavy traffic but now that NHibernate project is doing some heavy tests 
with it, more discussions should come.

Anyway, in Castle proposal, section - Community, it's stated 'The 
Aspect# project have three developers involved, and the Castle container has 
only one. This incubation process has the objective of attract more 
contributors, new ideas, new perceptions and even new use cases that will 
drive our roadmap.'
And section states 'We've been using our projects in commercial 
applications to practice the eat-your-own-dog-food and consequently improve 
the design and features as needed. However this is not enough and this 
incubation process is exactly to make our community stronger.'

Thus we consider this incubation process as a attempt to build a community. 
If we fail on this, we wont graduate, and neither we would like to graduate 
without a community.

But now, if we should have a strong community to enter incubator, then we 
will have to wait a few months :-(

Sorry for the late reply.  I thought it was more appropriate
to reply to this thread rather than the [VOTE] thread if I
was primarily asking a question/voicing a concern...

>From the proposal and a quick look at the SF sites,
I get the impression that there isn't much of a community
behind this project yet.  You mention that in your proposal
and the mailing list archives look relatively sparse.
In other words, I don't see lots of development discussion
on the lists nor much of a presence of a user community.
Please correct me if I've missed something, which is quite
possible.  I also understand some of this comes from Avalon,
so you may have a community there.

I think there are two schools of thought about whether new
incubator projects should have some sort of community to
start with or whether that only needs to exist upon leaving
incubation.  Personally, I lean towards requiring some
community around a project before entering incubation,
because I fear that doing otherwise will eventually be
difficult to scale.

So, hammett, please correct me if I've misunderstood the
state of the Castle community.  Also, other Incubator PMC
members should weigh-in about how much this even matters.

Otherwise, I think your proposal looks good (and interesting).
