I think the question is more along the lines of what else would be
required to produce a "canonical"
release of Apache Netbeans. If everything that is required is being
donated -- I think we're good.
IOW, the project must be self-contained and not depend on anything
still left behind the firewall
to do on-going development and most important releases. E.g. if I send
you a patch -- you can't
reject it on the grounds that some test behind Oracle's frewall I've
never seen failed. Stuff like

On a related note, I haven't seen it explicitly  mentioned in the
proposal, but I hope you guys do
realize that once this project is accepted the Netbeans brand belongs
to Apache. IOW, if Oracle
or anybody else ever want to have an independent product based on
Apache Netbeans they will
have to call it something else.
