Go for it.  We're really interested in people's feedback.

I think that the core issue is "can the community govern itself in an 
Apache manner", which is the core driver behind the "do a release" 
suggestion.  I'm guessing that the "do a release" suggestion is simply a 
mechanism for PMC members to get information on which to make a decision.

Will you (and others that have questions) be satisfied if other mentors 
provide similar assessments as I have as to community status and ability 
to self-govern?
