Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Incubation Proposal of MesaTEE

Thanks for the proposal, it sound like a really interesting project.

Incubation can sometimes take 2 years or more. Given few people with experience at Apache
are involved with this project and the core developers are from one company, it may take longer
that indicated in this proposal.

This may not be possible, what would the project do if that was the case? Have you discussed
this with your proposed mentors or infra?

Is not currently an IPMC member, only IPMC members can officially be mentors.

Of the three mentors listed 2 have never been mentors to my knowledge, have they been involved
with any other projects going through the incubating process at Apache? The third mentor may
be a little overextended given the number of podlings they mentors. Having only one experienced
mentor may be a risk to the project. What will you do if your mentors go missing or unable
to help?
