Huh?  What I should have been clear and concise to anyone who has follow the project for the
past several years.

Lucene.Net has already been through the official process of being promoted out of incubator
status.  Why is it necessary to repeat this process?
The PMC failed to respond to the list when problems with updating the web site were discussed.
 So updating the web site is insufficient.
There were also a number of issues with renaming the project to remove "incubator" from the
mailing lists and web site reverences.
We should not repeat or reverse this unless absolutely necessary.
A brief pause in development and list discussions should not cause the PMC such worries about
the vitality of the project.

A better way to put that is.. Thank you for the background, we would hate to repeat history
due to being un-aware of it.. 

Now to returned to our regularly scheduled repeat of history (new and improved with "informed"
action :-P).

We've already been through this process once before.  Why repeat?

At this point, I think the PMC expects to see a plan and action for either going back to Incubation
and becoming a standalone project or going to the Attic and then being maintained elsewhere.
In either case, it is clear that it is in the best interest of the .NET community to have
some self-determination.

Based on the messages here, I think you have enough volunteers to go back to the Incubator
and try again.  I would suggest one of you volunteers browses over to
and take a look at what it means to put together an entry proposal (basically, you need a
Wiki page outlining the proposal) and then solicit mentors/champions on
and then call a vote.
