BTW, one amendment to my proposed process below:

An alternative to #4 is to go through the Incubator, which might be good to get other
Foundation members on the PMC that are outside of Apache Hadoop and that themselves
have experience in other communities, and to see how those Foundation members may
help the new Hadoop projects learn about the way other communities at the Foundation

This quite possibly could be great cross fertilization and tutelage that the
new (eventual) TLPs could benefit from.

Post facto this alternative #4, we jump to #6, except instead of TLPs, the new
projects operate as Apache Incubator podlings, use the Incubator for its mentorship,
metrics on healthy projects, etc.

This would also be a good way to go.

Then there is a new step here in that scenario:

7. Graduate to TLP from Incubator via board resolution.
