That’s because there isn’t a prescribed one. It generally has the project name, “apache”
is useful to have for branding and possible trademark protection, “incubating” may be
required for incubating projects.

Yep it’s a feature of GitHub that we wish could be turned off. It adds noise and some confusion
re releases as users may download a “release” before an official release had been made.

Which is fine. You may want to add “apache” and/or edgent” if at some point you’re
going to releasing more than one artefact or other reasons mentioned  above but it up to the
PPMC to decide.
