I must admit that it's human nature, but I think - but I'm probably 
optimistic - that people working on an apache project should overcome 
this reluctance. In this very case, as Chemistry has entered the 
incubator more than 6 months ago, I can understand that 'merging' with 
OpenCMIS would slow down the process, and OTOH, OpenCMIS may not like 
the idea to be seen as a sub-project... But this is the Incubator, the 
perfect place yo work out such problems. My fear is that by accepting 
two separate projects, one may die (or even both), because of the lack 
of community... It seems less likely if both project work out a common 
solution, IMHO.

Collaboration does not kill good ideas...
