Everyone else that has been working with Dave is already an ASF 
committer with a CLA on file at the ASF:

Trustin Lee
Dan Diephouse
Alex Karasulu

Yes let's get that software grant and a CLA from you Dave.  Considering 
the constituents of the project at safehaus we might be able to take up 
Justin's earlier suggestion to possibly import the project: moving the 
source, doco (confluence) and jira issues all at once to the ASF.

Also note that there are no dependencies except on MINA.

Why don't we start the process of importing the project into Directory 
for now as a MINA protocol example and get the MINA TLP proposal before 
the board. With the move of MINA (and AsyncWeb) out of Directory, 
AsyncWeb will be under a MINA TLP.

Or do you still see incubation as being necessary for AsyncWeb even 
after getting a Grant and CLA from Dave?

I'm asking these questions because then it will effect the way we write 
the MINA proposal and whether or not we have to submit one for AsyncWeb.

How do we determine if this is a "boundry case" (quoting Noel's email) 
for import rather than incubation?
