OK. Now I'm confused.

Do you want Geronimo to accept a code donation? Or do you want to  
start a new project in incubator? I thought it was the former (and  
I'm pretty sure you do, too).

The process IIUC is roughly

1. Geronimo votes to accept the donation
2. The Geronimo project fills out some paperwork (update an html page  
and fill out the IP Clearance form -- 
3. The Incubator PMC is notified of the donation and given 48 hours  
to raise any objections.

That's it. There is no incubator SVN. If you want us to vote to  
accept the donation prior to posting a new version of the source to  
the JIRA, then I'd be ok with that. IMO that's all that the process
