Subject Re: [RT] incubation time

I'm getting ready to request that WSRP4J graduate out of incubator.  My 
main concern has been the community size, but that has been improving 
lately.  We are getting more and more feedback and involvement.

As far as the amount of time it should take to get through incubation, 
in WSRP4J's case, the market interest is starting to pick up, so the 
community size will pick up correspondingly.  Perhaps it was too soon to 
bring WSRP4J into Apache back in September, but we didn't know that at 
the time.
