I'm skeptical. Having ASF Members swear that they "really really mean
it" doesn't transform them into core developers overnight.  The
project is still being overseen by outsiders with limited investment.
The same flawed incentive structure which afflicts the Incubator

Should work or life changes force these ASF Members to make hard
choices, the pTLP is still a volunteer effort that they didn't start
on their own and may not be getting paid to work on -- and it will be
prioritized appropriately. As a result, I would expect attrition at
roughly the same rates as Incubator Mentors.
