Actually, we don't need to use it for internally started projects.  But we
most certainly have to use it for things coming in from the outside.

Absolutely.  When we are bringing in external projects, we need to make sure
that they become a healthy community following ASF practices.

However, when we are bringing in external codebases into an existing
project, we still need to use the Incubator.  Rule of thumb: if you need a
Software Grant, you should be recording it in the Incubator as per the IP
template.
