It is actually neither. It is viability of the community outside of requirements
of a very particular organization. IOW, the only way for me to make sure
that community is not joined at the hip with ASF INFRA would be to see
other foundations adopt the tools and joining the community.

Good. That would be my preferred way there then. Honestly, given the
composition of the initial Whimsy community straight to TLP path is much
more efficient way to go about it. IMHO, there's not much that Incubator
experience would bring to the table for Whimsy.
