in the last few weeks that has been a sharp uptick in
activity at the incubator as people try to figure out just
what the requirements and policies *are* -- and should be.

at this point, it appears that absent any official statements,
the podling's mentor should be the one watching this most closely
and most able to report on condition and progress.  others may
disagree, but that's my personal view.

i *believe* the mentor for both pluto and wsrp4j is sam ruby.
i do know that both have entered the incubator.  the inclarity
of that status information is, i believe, partly due to the
dearth of solid process guidelines, and partly due to the fact
that the incubator web site is about fifty times harder to keep
up-to-date than it should be.  (mho)

a 'proposal on the wiki' is not a proposal.  it's an advisory starting
point, nothing more.  for something to be proposed, it needs to be
sent in mail.

in any event, i believe that the infrastructures for both pluto and
wsrp4j have been created.  i believe the legal requirements (clas,
code grant, copyright assignment, licence changed to apache) have
been met.  i think the only thing remaining before they graduate
is a period of observation to see that they have adopted procedures
and attitudes that will let them fit comfortably into the overall
