Once an Area 51 proposal has entered the commitment phase, is there a deadline by which it needs to achieve critical mass?
I found a couple questions lamenting about how long it takes to get enough commitments (e.g., How should “critical mass” be calculated?), so presumably it's a long time.
But does that mean a site could reach beta a year after entering the commitment phase? 6 months? Or are proposals intended (either manually or automatically) to be quashed after a month or two due to lack of critical mass?
