Hi Pierre,

Thanks for your response.

My response inline:

 AS> Cool, looks good to me.

 AS> I understand that. However, a continous release cycle points
towards a continous onslaught of tangible improvements to the project
as well as an ongoing interest in the project. That is a good
indicator that the project has been able to establish a foundation of
a stable community which can drive the project forard.

 AS> That is one thing that we should definitely look into since it
will definitely come up in the TLP discussion on Incubator PMC.

AS> If this is not a concern, I am fine with that. Apologies for the
nitpicking :)

If no other concerns are raised, I do not see any outstanding reason
as to why we cannot proceed with a TLP resolution. I suggest that we
start a podling Namesearch and get the trademark issues out of the way
(if any, I could not figure that out from the Podling page) and draft
a TLP resolution.
