I would estimate that less than 10 were particularly relevant to what my vote will ultimately
be on this proposal. It seems pretty clear to me that there is a lot of emotional reaction
to this but a lot of that is from people who don't really seem to grasp what the incubator
process, and perhaps the ASF itself, are about.  First and foremost reading [1] followed by
[2] and [3] should be a requirement before posting to this list.  

If that's the case then we're sorely missing another forum.

This discussion has naturally brought in a lot people and views
from outside the Apache community, whose interest in us has been
triggered by circumstances not of their making.  Many of them are
potential future valued contributors to our community, while
others may prefer TDF and take no further part after this discussion.

Whilst your references should be essential reading in due course
for those who stay, we should not raise too high a bar to those
whose interest is OOO/TDF but who are new to and maybe undecided on
ASF participation!
