All contributions will be heartily welcomed.  The stance I intend to
encourage (and the other mentors and early committers share this
intent) is similar to the Mahout project personality ... contributions
and contributors are highly welcomed.

The only thing that I am pushing for here is a timing detail.  Since a
vote is ongoing right now, I would like to finish the vote before
changing anything.  Assuming the vote succeeds (and there is a strong
trend that way) then we will do the necessary plumbing to get the
project started and be ready for contributions.

It absolutely will be.
