When reading the incubation policy(1) my understanding is that the
"incubating" requirement is a labeling thing for the archive file that gets
voted on, and not something that necessarily needs to be part of the
version of the release.

Looking at the release management guide(2) it seems implied that the
incubating substring is part of the project name and not the version.

Of course, I'm just speculating here. Someone with seniority within the ASF
might want to chime in, perhaps?



We discussed this during our 4.0.0-incubating release process, and the
advice from the mentors was to use -incubating everywhere until graduation.
Here's one of the threads (I think there were others too):

We could consider reopening the discussion, but I'm not sure it's worth it

discussion on the matter. Oh well.

No worries...  and yes, we're using semver.  In fact, that's why so

much attention is being paid to maintaining backward compatibility for

our API right now.  We have also agreed that we want to remain on the

major version 4 for our next feature release (4.1.0-incubating)

Actually, that's another thing to note (if you didn't pick up on it).

We have a requirement that all of our releases (until we graduate) are

"-incubating" release numbers.
