Can you invite a representative of MetaCRS to the incubation meeting then (perhaps as a subtle reminder about the process) and
we can see if we can sort out something that will work for the project.

Something may consist of asking them to reform as a committee rather then a project; even if they happen to have some code on the side.

Agreed; no suden moves on our end either :-)
But at the same time I would love to free you up as a volunteer to help projects
that are willing to work at the incubation process.

Frank has expressed some confusion about how to proceed with MetaCRS previously (based on the same observation that it a group of several projects). But yeah with both of you on hand I imagine we can sort something out.
