Hmm, in general, the only discussions we ever hold in private are those
relating to non-disclosure issues or personnel issues.  We would have a
discussion and vote about the directory project on the general list.
The reason we haven't is because it is being suggested to incubator 
rather than some other project or the board, which means it is waiting 
us to arrange for a new chair.

FTR, there is no such vote taking place in private.

Personally, I think it is an excellent proposal except for one item:
Java is not the center of the universe.  Either this project should
consider all languages (seems unlikely, unless you already have those
other people in place), or the project should be named after the
product name and not the whole category of software.  A name like
"jeldap" (I've only seen that word used in relation to turbine)
would get you past a number of hurdles.
