Great.  That satisfies my only concern.  I think the administrative 
items can be sorted out fairly easily, so I am +1 for welcoming this 
codebase and community into commons.  I guess the  next step is to 
decide whether to start in the sandbox or proper and then kick off a vote.

 From my perspective, proper is appropriate as the component has had a 
release.  I will give others a chance to weigh in on this and then kick 
off the acceptance vote.
