Yeah, I don't think the answer *is* obvious, but I think the answer is 

To me, the answer is *an identified leadership structure that makes 
things happen*.  My take: any Fedora undertaking that is mature enough to 
(a) develop a critical mass of people who *do* something instead of 
talking about something, and (b) easily integrate other people who want to 
help by handing them useful actions to perform... is mature enough to be 
called a Fedora project.

Really, it's a project when the *participants* decide it's a project... 
not when *we* decide it's a project.  The board should be encouraging 
those "incubator projects" to *take action*, and should reward those that 
*do* take action by giving them "official project status".

My $0.02.
