Ok, I just deleted a long elaboration over the Open Participation
Software for Java ( community experiment, but I don't
think it would be appreciated. Instead, I say this;

Letting everyone have write access to all Commons sub-projects, is not
an ASF requirement. You may distinguish between the sandbox and the
rest. And you may give people coming in with the code, commit rights
to sandbox while observing and teaching them what Apache is all about.
And you may have a unspoken rule of no releases from sandbox, as an
incentive of people to sharpen up.

Although I generally agree with Robert's sentiment, I don't think the
Comcubator will lessen the burden on the Incubator PMC. Not
necessarily by intent, but that there will be individuals who will
want to help out, that are currently helping out on Incubator, thus
thinning time for everything else.
