If I look at the initial committers list, I see a big portion to be facebook
developers. During incubation you should work on diversifying.

Hmm, hosting at googlecode, or sourceforge would statisfy that as well. So
why does the project want to join Apache specifically?

Again, it seems like a huge contingent of facebook developers. You really
should work on diversification during incubation.

There is no current infrastructure for this available. There has been an
experiment done by the Maven devs, but I'm out of touch with its status.

What is the affiliation of Jake Luciani?

I think you need one more mentor, but (s)he may present her/himself during
the vote for the proposal.
