Yes, a [PROPOSAL] thread is certainly a place to ask about what other 
Apache projects and communities are related to the proposal, and how 
they've interacted before.  It seems

But we're happy to incubate any promising community, even if their 
technology competes with an existing Apache project.  It indeed is about 
community - and if there's another promising community that wants to 
fork Subversion and build BigBrother, then we should let them try it.
