My opinion is that not that we have too many projects stuck in incubation,
after all there are only five projects in incubation currently.  My opinion
is that those with experience in the incubation process are not willing
to volunteer to act as mentors for the new candidate projects.

I'm not sure if the solution is more active solicitation of mentors from
the existing folks with experience, or whether we ought to widen the
circle of potential mentor candidates.

It is also possible that the candidate projects are just not of sufficient
interest to attract mentor candidates, but certainly that can not apply to
a project as popular as PostGIS!  (Actually, we have had a mentor candidate
volunteer for PostGIS).

I do think we need to proceed to a graduation vote for OSSIM.  I'm afraid
that incubation committee activity has fallen well down my priority list.
