Subject Re: Question about proposal champions

Hi Greg,

from my experience it has proven to be very hard to start
single-man-shows here. The Incubator works best if there is an active
community already.

If you are a sole person, you might also consider Some
people say, Labs is for experiments, and when there is a community, go
to the Incubator.

Personally, if you have no plan how to get new people on-board, or if
nobody else here is interested in becoming a committer, or if your
project is not Hadoop related :-), then you should first start building
a community. 

If you don't have at least three committers, you will als not be be able
to cut a release.
