OK with discussing all this.
I remember an epic chat over the phone when we tried to convince the BPEL editor project that they would be better off being hosted at the STP project. I'd be happy to discuss how it went - I think Oisin remembers it as well.
I think we should help the Technology project by doing a bit of marketing for other TLPs. I also note that not all incubating projects go to the Technology TLP (which is why I am confused about its role).
I'll try to break that down and add those topics to the next call if that's ok ?

As the AC, we can merely suggest... :)

So - two items for the next AC meeting, perhaps:
1) That the Tools PMC look to expansion and staffing from more of its
2) That the Technology PMC take steps to help mature Technology
contained projects to move out from under the Technology umbrella.
