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).

Looking forward to hearing from you! :-)
