i'm a little bit in two minds about this...

i have lurked on the list from time-to-time and have been impressed. i
think that TLP is the right destination and that QPID will be an good
addition one day.

but another voice asks: are they really ready today? has the IPMC
fully equipped them for the chanlleges ahead? do they really
understand how to mentor new independent developers into committers
and PMCers? is the diversity sufficient to have learnt how to have
disagreements on technical matters whilst retaining community spirit?

right or wrong, i'm not completely convinced right now...
