Incubator is a bit of a different beast than Jakarta. Projects in
the Incubator are not 'full fledged ASF projects' yet, they will be
as soon as they leave in Incubator. The incubation designation
has come up on the [EMAIL PROTECTED] list. If this is problematic
for any reason I suggest you bring that up there.

Given there will be future projects in incubator with releases during
incubation, it would be nice if we could accomodate for that.
