It was discussed on several of the lists Martin, in general I am trying to keep discussion in the open.  

Here is a reference from geotools-devel:

> We asked for OSGeo incubation without success; this gave to Geotk a

> projects. We though that OSGeo could help building a community; the
> other point of view was that the community shall exist before a project

> the GIS world. GeoTools could delegate some services to projects who
> invested more in those areas, as you already do with JTS.
