Yup. For sure. Together with Bertrand and the organizations volunteering to
host this service, we'll need to find terms of agreement -- which I think
we should try to model on those of Sonatype in relation to Apache Maven.

However, there are many many months of incubation ahead -- I believe that
in those months these kinds of arrangements can be made. I am not in a
hurry to have the vote on the proposal done. On the other hand, I don't
believe that the finding of a home for should be a
blocker for that, given that everyone recognizes the importance of and the range of organizations available who could be
the host of that service and the fact that we are already exploring this
with some of them.

Just my 2c on this.
