Great, thank you for the input and the support.

You, Rich and KAM talk about a TLP/Central Service so let's start
discussing that. I'm fairly well informed about the Incubator but I have no
ideas about the direct-to-TLP/Central Services path. Any pointers/mentors
would be great. If no one objects I'd like to start the process of DISCUSS
and potentially VOTE in the right place then. Would that be members@ or
board@ or something else entirely? All documentation I can find is about
new Incubator projects.
