At the moment, only Dims has taken the time to enumerate a list of 
concerns.  Henri and the others have provided well thought out points on 
the definition of umbrella projects and whether AMQ should be a TLP or 
subproject; these not really being impediments to graduation but the 
necessary discourse about the final disposition of AMQ when it graduates 
that I was looking for when I initially sent out my email.

There are a number of definitions for the word "subjective".  If 
subjective means that your concerns may be peculiar to yourself, can you 
not explicitly state what you'd like to see?  If you are unable to 
communicate what those are, we may not unable to address them.  Is that 
fair to the AMQ community?

If I take away the list of infrastructure issues, I only see the need to 
have a thorough discussion as to where AMQ will land when it graduates.  
Once this settles down and we, hopefully, reach a consensus we will be 
ready to vote, imho.
