Personally, my take on it is that the administrative side of things
should be resolvable pretty quickly - collecting CLAs, reviewing
licenses - also the process of Incubator PMC members observing how the
Wicket community operates, all of that can IMO happen quite quickly.

The thing that really will take a bit more time is simply both sides
getting to know each other - forming those human relationships. After
all, that is what holds an organisation like the ASF together in the end.

As to how long that process might take, whilst I'm pretty sure it'll be
on the quicker end of the scale, I'm not really that sure how long it
will be - to some extent it depends upon what comes up during the process.

Does anyone here have an idea what the shortest time is that a new
community might be incubated (assuming no other issues)?
