I just grab the description of both projects :

"OpenCMIS will deliver a Java implementation of the OASIS CMIS 

"Apache Chemistry is a generic Java language implementation of the

I barely see how two communities working on two projects with the very 
same target can't collaborate and form the best possible community to 
fulfill this target, leveraging the great people from both of the 
current project...

This is where I see a contradiction : it seems like there is some 
divergence on the technical side, which is not really the Incubator 
concern. What is important to us is that a community is built, because 
it's the guarantee for a long term existence for the project. We don't 
have the resources and time to setup a darwinian process here :)
