At the ASF Board meeting on July 16, the Board effectively directed the
Incubator to accept a proposal to start a J2EE project. The past several
weeks has been spent pulling that together, along with the initial list of
committers, and whatnot.

To some extent, the Incubator doesn't have a choice :-)  They could say "we
don't have the people", but as with all Incubator projects, the "shepherds"
and other do-ers are expected to come along with the proposal.

Excellent! Discussion will be here on general@incubator until the project
gets its own mailing lists [for technical discussion]. As with any Apache
project, participation is easy and welcome!
