Hi Alexis,

I think it would really help if you started developing in the open  
using one of the free open source sites. This would provide the  
project history to a potential Champion, including access to the  
source code and general feel of whether you are really interested in  
building community around your code.

On a technical note, what exactly does this framework test? Is this  
regression testing (i.e. checking that the ORM schema matches the  
actual DB schema), or is there a value beyond that? We had a similar  
framework submitted to the Cayenne project some time back, and I could  
never understand what exactly is being tested.
