I'm not totally convinced by that reasoning, wouldn't it be simpler to
just go directly to TLP and have those listed here as mentors agree to
help out by being on the initial PMC?

If it does incubate what would be delaying its graduation? Its already
got everything we list in the incubator docs - diverse committers,
done several releases etc.

The current proposal doesn't use the incubator naming for the mailing
lists and svn location, from past discussions here it should really be
using the incubator naming unless its a very special case. Is this a
special case?
