Hi Greg,

I'll repeat what Jim said: how do you think IBM can force us to take
the project? Bob can say whatever he'd like on his blog.

it wasn't me who stated that, so don't ask me. :-)

I stated with my previous mail that I do *not* think you are forced. What I wanted to say is that statements like these *might* lead to assumptions, and that's (IMHO) the reason why people make statements you could be influenced.

The software grant is a "done deal". I happen to believe the proposal
will be accepted, but it is not a "done deal".

Ah, okay - so the software grant exists independent from the incubation result?

In any case... stop assuming that what*one*  person says is
representative of the entire (ASF) community. That simply isn't true.

No, that wasn't my intention - sorry if it looked like that. I just wanted to make help understand why people state things they do.

Again, I do *not* believe you are influenced. Never did so.
