Take a look at how other incubating projects were set up and then read some
of the docs about making requests for this stuff at

Nah, as long as everyone is happy we're happy :-)

Ah. Neat-o. I've always liked Xwork. More than webwork anyway :-)

The status file ( you'll
be maintaining has a checklist :-)

The major developers probably should send a software grant. There might
be a corporate copyright holder that needs to send in a CCLA and/or a
software grant. Contributors of significant (in amount or size or
copyrightability) patches should send a CLA too.

Copyright statements, NOTICEs, "credits" sections and the like should all
be brought in line with best practice. Etc.
