FWIW, This has been an on-going process for well over a year, when the switch 
to Apache license v2 was performed.

I think we (Apache) can expect the discussion in the Jini community to take a 
while (looking at how long the license switch took in discussions), as there 
are many details we (Jini community) need to sort out prior to make a formal 
approach to the ASF. The "Jini Development Process" (JDP - which is the 
standards process) is one such issue to be sorted out, as well as the many 
Jini projects at

Jini arriving at Apache is IMHO great; The Jini team at Sun have tried many 
ways to make more people actively involved in the core development, and a few 
have dived in and well respected contributors, both in core as well as 
peripheral technologies. We can expect a handful of non-Sun people on the 
initial committer list, and generally a healthy community from the start.

On behalf of the Jini Community; We are looking forward to work with the ASF 
and will post a proposal for the Incubator in due time.
