incubating or incubator are both possible in the name afaik.
There are precedents for both of them.

What's more confusing is the release_notes.txt file:

This may be more consistent with the README, and others, but I don't think
this is a show stopper.

Another issue is with the README file. It starts with the following

I've also seen both when refering to an incubating project.
I guess it would be better if the naming is consistent, but again
maybe these problems could be fixed for 2.0.1.

The package contains the following files in lib:

I don't think so.  Usually apache is only added to the distribution zips /
tar.gzs,
but not to the libraries themselves.  I must say I haven't  seen any project
yet
prefixing all the jars by apache- ...

Just a couple of heads-up from a CXF newcomer.
