I think David asked it today because Brett, David and I shared a coffee yesterday and this
was one of the topics of conversation. It's timing that's all.

The problem with working out *during* incubation is that the foundation has already committed
to providing the support necessary. We need an indication upon entry. I believe David asked
this question in order to start doing this informally while we figure out how to do it in
a more consistent and managed way.

In summary, I fully agree with your comment "We should ask the same questions to projects"
and moving forwards I believe we will do so - starting now.

We should ask the same questions to projects and I don't see this question of infrastructure
asked very often. So I raised it.

David of course is doing great and I just saw some of this as can be worked out during incubation

> It's a requirement for the ASF to support its projects. Understanding what impact each
project coming into the incubator might have is important to allow VP Infra to plan for our
growth. David did not ask if Manchester will be donating resources, he asked what do they
currently provide and what does the project think they will need from the ASF.
> For the record, I am familiar with Taverna from a previous life. It's is interesting
to see this proposal coming to the ASF.  The first time this was discussed with the University
of Manchester was many years ago. The conversation occurred every couple of years, each time
with different people, but never progressed to a proposal. Given the answers in this thread
things have changed quite considerably since then.
