I'm not sure I understand this argument.

Sure, it's hard to bootstrap a community from scratch, but we're going to have
to do that whatever the case. The only difference would be where we do that,
either with the ASF or without it. What would be the problem of building the
community and the code at the same time within the Incubator?

Hmm, interesting.

So there's no hard and fast rule then?
