My point was that we should be prepared for such concerns.  For
example, I imagine an announcement that Apache is producing a full
ecommerce stack would create some buzz and questions.

As for being a good fit, on the surface it seems like it would be.  I
don't know anything other than what was in the proposal about how
OFBiz has worked internally as a community.  But then, figuring out
those sorts of things is exactly what the incubation process is about.
