Thanks for your thoughtful, constructive commentary, David.

The issue of GitHub integration is complex, unresolved, and as today's thread
demonstrates, controversial.  I considered voting -1 because I don't want to
hand a hot potato to the Board.

However, as you note Spark comes highly recommended, and I am impressed by
what I've seen on general@incubator, especially today and in the thread on
dealing with binaries in their 0.8 release.  I believe that Spark is likely to
play a highly constructive role in realizing the promise of integrating the
"Community over Code" ASF with "Social Coding" GitHub.

+1 (binding) to graduate.
