I posted a similar statement yesterday. Personally, I think the traffic on this list has settled
down a lot in the last 24 hours and is now focusing in on topics more relevant to this list.
But maybe that is just because it was Saturday :-)

What I am still waiting to hear on are:
1. The amount of code in the project that the grant didn't give to us under the Apache License.
2. The amount of work that will be required to rework dependencies.
3. Whether the number of initial committers will be sufficient to start the project (this
is probably going to be very subjective).
4. Whether there are enough mentors who have the time to devote to this.  Since this is a
very large undertaking I'd appreciate a bit more than just their name on the wiki but perhaps
an actual estimate of how much time they have to devote to the project.
