I am not espousing a conspiracy theory; there is no secret cabal formed after an ApaceCon
pub crawl. 

I too am being candid. I am merely providing an unvarnished distillation of what the proposals
virtually are.

Garnering consensus is difficult here, in part because of the fuzziness you mention, but also
because members have such different opinions as to what the Incubator function is and what
it means to be an Apache project.

Under the above proposals, that necessarily messy, frustrating, exhausting, process of garnering
consensus on the above thorny issues will not take place as philosophically compatible IPM
v2 members turn out Apache projects that fit their view.
