I'd like to show my ignorance and openly say, "I don't get it."  I
don't understand subtlety you guys are talking about.  

I'd also like to repsectfully ask people not to use wording like "we
won't be" as I don't know the rules enough to know if that really
means "we aren't allowed to" or "the best decision, IMHO, is to".

Again, I'm having a hard time isolating the decisions we have to make
from the perspectives on how we should make them (sorry).  It's
difficult having never had to think about this stuff before.

So, it seems we have to get a handle on:
 - Separate ACL or one ACL
 - One Repo or x repos
 - Incubate or not incubate (still not sure on what that means)
 - Separate release cycle or one release cycle
 - Separate lists or same lists (is that on the table?)

Is that anywhere near comprehensive or accurate?

Thanks and sorry for the newbie questions.
