Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Weave for Apache Incubator

greatest challenge for Weave (or what it will be named). One of main
motivations for open-sourcing Weave is that it will benefit from the
variety of use cases that will emerge outside of our office, and will
eventually lead to more versatile and mature technology. We have already
received interest from several people outside of Continuuity who wish to
use and improve Weave, and we believe that a diverse community can be
built. We will do our best to emphasize community and avoid closed-door
