Richard, thanks for volunteering, it will be excellent to see another 
high profile project go through incubation.

Re being a previous contributor: There should be no problem there. A 
precedent has already been set.
I mentored GeoTools through incubation, despite being a committer a few 
years back, and also being a retired member of the Project Steering 
Committee. I don't think it clouded my judgment, I still held the 
geotools team accountable.
