I am not familiar with how "mature" other projects are when they  
maybe we are just not there yet. I just like to point out that CouchDB  
a healthy project before entering incubation with mailing lists, regular
contributors, bug tracking & releases. I understand that ASF-guidelines
are different and that we might still belong in the Incubator.

On the "push", I don't know what you are referring to exactly. We  
don't see
any pressure from the ASF or Incubator or Mentors or outside to  
We as the project just felt we are ready. Considering our mentors +1'd  
desire to graduate, they don't have these concerns. Who is "pushing"  

Thanks for your input.
