I urge TDF to participate, but their participation should not be a
prerequisite for us to Incubate a project.

We didn't balk when Geronimo was proposed, despite complaints from JBoss.
We didn't balk when Felix (nee Oscar) was proposed.  We didn't balk in other

community pick the winners.  I don't see a reason to change our philosophy
