Was supposed to be for any project born outside the community and joining in. 
So not quite so voluntary.

Oh come on... the bad mean bureaucracy argument now. Wanna look at the Eclipse 
incubation process? Or the Apache one?

Seriously it's just about having a person already within the community making 
sure the new project needs get catered to and also making sure the new project 
is on the right path to put in place rules and procedures compatible with the 
rest of the community (and the Manifesto).

Call it bureaucracy if you wish, but I think it's good to avoid people 
dropping code in a corner to then be ignored by everyone and wondering what to 
do next.
