committers - we had to pass through the incubator, bringing the new
codebase in a status that can be moved to Commons then request for
Given that precedent, I didn't see any reason why I should have opted
for a different path rather than the Incubator :)

I didn't even think about that. I just called for a VOTE to sponsor

I am FWD'ing the discussion to dev@commons to evaluate BS joins
