That is a misconception. For projects targetting top-level, EITHER the Board 
or the Incubator PMC must sponsor.
Board doesn't like to sponsor, and do so only in exceptional cases. So the 
Incubator PMC is the right folks to address. (And probably why you get the 
"What is this doing here?" response from the Board.)

I am also quite intrigued by this proposal. OFBiz has been on my radar for 
quite a few years, but never got into any active work I am doing. 

However, I am currently working on a "competing product" which I think would 
benefit from being based on something like OFBiz instead of "all in-house" 
development. I think the company in question would also benefit is some of 
the generic stuff is pushed out into OFBiz, to lower the man power 
requirement. After all, this company doesn't sell the underlying technology, 
they sell the end-user system, totally customized for a particular company.

I am in favour of bringing this to ASF, and would also like to assist in the 
incubation process.
