Cool. All or some of it?

Looks good.

What I'm missing is an idea of the interaction between and this
proposed new apache project, and an idea of the interaction between the JCP
process and the apache project. Eg is the apache project a (reference?)
implementation of a bunch of JCP specs managed through (in which case
I'd say it needs a new name), is it a 'full' move from to, or something else?

Let the records show that Geir is listed as initial committer too yet probably
doesn't work at sun, unless he switched companies again :)

Lately popular opinion seems to be that it'd be good if there were at least
three mentors. Any others?
