Is there already a community in terms of a group of people who drive
this forward and who are willing to continue? Or is this a random set
of people who will likely go away after creation of the TLP?

If there is no community it should go through incubation: the
incubator is also about community building. In addition i think the
incubator is a good way to initially set up resources. Also you reach
other projects: the incubator ml are read by lots of people around
apache, maybe you get some more committers from there.

That all being said, as the code was developed from ASF people under
the license and on ASF repositories, I have no problem with giving a
+1 for direct tlp creation.
