Until we have a healthy functioning community, really.  I think that  
it will take a while to sort things out.

Note that there's nothing "wrong" with being here.  The major  
functional difference is that we can't do an official release of  
software, but we're so far away from that, it doesn't matter.

The difference is that the incubated projects are independent, report  
to the Apache board, and have an independent Project Management  

In our case, we are part of Apache Incubator, answer to the Incubator  
PMC (which reports to the Apache board), and have a "PPMC", which is  
a PMC that is learning how to manage itself with help from the  
Incubator PMC.

All in all, the system has evolved to work very well.

Yes, it can fair

We are incubated (I thought that the page update happened...), but  
I'll go check.
