I can't answer about the quiet.  

I suggest you review the bylaws at <>.

Three factors stand out:

 1. It is not permissible to create releases from a lab.
 2. There is sharing of a single SVN repository, <>.
 3. The Labs PMC decides on the state of a lab and whether it is time to take it into the
incubator or elsewhere.

Also, there appears to be a single JIRA project, LABS, with an [informal?] naming technique
to identify individual-lab issues.

Raphael, I'm curious how that contrasts with creating a public GitHub project providing open-source
code under the Apache License 2.0 and manages its codebase in compliance with what the ASF
requires of a project (e.g., NOTICE files and acceptable licenses on dependencies).
