The thing is that, the project status page will reflect the podling status
during incubation. If you point to the website, then in a month or two
after graduation, the data will be changed as the TLP continues to grow.

As for the rules, come on, it's a very, very, very small price to pay, and
when you get used to it, they just happen automatically. And, also, most of
them are there for a reason that with time here you will start to get more
familiar with.
