+          <p>It's good to make a first release early, even if it's not of great technical
quality. That helps get acquainted with the incubation release process.</p>
+          <p>From the Incubator's point of view, the release only has to fulfill the
ASF's release requirements. Whether it's good or useful software doesn't matter at this stage.</p>
+          <p>Getting that first release past the Incubator PMC voting stage can be
hard, and it's a good idea to tackle this early in the incubation process, to get it out of
the way
+          and establish and document the podling's release process (link to Flex or Sling

+          <p>
+            To graduate, a podling has to demonstrate its ability to grow its community.
In practice, this means attracting and electing new committers and PPMC members.
+            Starting early on this helps. (TODO: reading list, Jukka's posts?)

to become a TLP but that's not the only possibility (join a TLP, go elsewhere, retire, ...)

it. This is usually announced right after the board meeting, and the new PMC chair
