I've read the proposal and looked at the current project site.  As a
member of the Incubator PMC, I'd vote +1 if a vote was needed. 
However, since it sounds like the MyFaces PMC has already voted to
accept the  project; so I would suggest that you treat this project
like any new incubator project and get accounts set up for each new
committer (after CLAs are received).

As far as whether just the code goes through incubation or whether the
whole community goes through incubation, I think that's a call made by
the MyFaces PMC.  If the PMC believes that most of the key committers
are new to Apache, then they should have the entire project incubated
(still not requiring a vote of the Incubator PMC until graduation,
under the current rules).  If the MyFaces PMC believes that their own
community (current set of committers and contributors) can already
support the code, then they should just incubate the code and add any
outside committers through their normal meritocratic process.
