-The top-level Incubator website is currently generated by Anakia.
-The source documents are in the "incubator" SVN repository at "content".
-The status reports for each project are kept in content/project/.
-See for more information.
-If you don't want to RTFM and just patch the incubator website a little:
-  -> edit/add files in the content/ directory (copy-pasting from existing
-     files is often a good idea)
-  -> install a java runtime environment or development kit
-  -> type './' on linux/mac/solaris/unix or 'build.bat' on windows
-  -> manually 'svn add' any files generated in site-publish that weren't there
-     before, or set the 'svn:ignore' property to ignore them. Eg something like
-     svn status site-publish | egrep '^\?' |\
-       sed -e 's/^\? *//g' | xargs svn add
-     may work for you.
-  -> check the generated stuff looks like you want it to. Eg something like
-     svn status site-publish | egrep '^(A|M)' |\
-       sed -e 's/^[AM] *//g' | xargs open
-     may work for you.
-  -> commit.
-If you get "svn: Inconsistent line ending style" errors when trying to commit the
-generated files, run 'ant fix' (or 'build.[sh|bat] fix') to correct these.
