i knew that this would come up sooner or later :-)

i had intended to bully someone into championing it for me but that
seemed a tad perverse and wasteful

in fact RAT is an even more extreme: since the incubator is lacking
good documentation for the bootstrap process, i've been doing
absolutely everything (including as much infra as possible) and
writing it all up

but then again, RAT is a very unusual project. for example, it's rare
to find a proposal where an overwhelming majority of incoming
committers are Apache Members and the rest long term contributors
(five plus years).

yes but i wouldn't recommend it as a model
