Actually, I had two purposes behind my question.  One was to learn
more about why the people behind the proposal wanted to come to
Apache.  Although it is nice to hear from Sam, as the project
champion, I was addressing Adam because I thought it would be nice to
hear from someone listed as a project committer as to why they thought
Apache community was a better fit.

My second reason for asking was as a polite gesture towards the
Eclipse Foundation, being another respectable, non-profit, open source
organization.  I strongly believe that the ASF is not an island in the
world of open source, and that it is good for us and all participants
in open source if we do what we can to minimize communication problems
about projects that others may have an interest in.  I probably don't
need to say any more about the relevancy of that issue to this
thread...but even when a miscommunication has nothing to do with the
ASF, I would prefer that it is addressed before the proposal becomes a
project associated with Apache.
