There are example of this; FtpServer was too small (1) to attract
critical mass while in Incubator. I (as Mentor) tried to be
'inventive' and asked if MINA folks would be interested, which they
were, and a couple of MINA PMC members were added into the FtpServer
to fulfill the community requirement. Should it have been enough for
Mina PMC to say ; "Yes, we will take charge of it."? I think so. After
the fact, I think this particular case has been very successful and
additional committer(s) with interest in the FtpServer has since been

I think this shows a concrete case of a relatively small code which
fits into a TLP, and the Incubator PMC should try to place these
accordingly. Commons should not be a dumping place...
