The proposal looks fine on paper, but I'll agree with some of the other 
comments that it seems a bit silly to incubate this as a disjoint project.

If you have 3 capable and able mentors *and* a whole bunch of people 
that are already committers, why can't they mentor your one or two new 
committers while those people are constrained to their specific sandbox, 
and avoid tons of bureaucracy and overhead?

I have no real idea why anyone would think that "doing incubation" looks 
like it'll have a better chance of success in this case.

Put another way - what does "doing incubation" buy you, and why is it 
seen as a better option?

Can you please reconsider and see if you can do this as an ip clearance 

If it helps I can hop on a mailing list and object to some objections? :-D
