Didn't realize there were rules about TLPs needing to drop by the
Incubator. Or that timelines were required.

Seems this is simply a TLP resolution proposed to the Board, and the
Incubator has zero input or concern on what DRAT is asking from the Board.

These are not the same communities. The Foundation should not "force" them
to work together.

They might logically make sense together, but the *communities* are
disjoint. There is zero reason for those communities to be lumped together.
In fact, it was the disjoint communities under an umbrella project that
spearheaded the Foundation's "blow up umbrellas" campaign a decade ago.

Communities define groupings. Not topic.

And does the DRAT acronym really impose on what the Creadur people are
doing with their Rat tool? Meh. That's a stretch.
