Thanks Jody: I'll update the spreadsheet on dxfcolor.h. That's scheduled for removal 
in 5.4. Not because there are problems, it's just that is not used at all.

As for speed? The problem wasn't the incubation process, it was myself. Incubation 
work was very sporadic with development work taking priority. Now, if priorities could 
have been flipped, perhaps with a carrot at the end of incubation, then things may well 
have  progressed much faster. By carrots I'm thinking of things like enhanced prominence 
on the OSGeo website, access to OSGeo infrastructure and marketing. Projects in
incubation enjoy basically the same benefits, save the * on homepage, as those that
made it through. Perhaps that was inevitable with the initial batch.

Looks good :-)


I noted that dxfcolor.h is still waiting for feedback - probably not 
Do you have and feedback on the incubation process - is there any way we 
could of made this faster for the MapServer community?

Nice work - congratulations.
