Comment:
Add a subsection on getting stuck

  can escalate to the incubator ombudsman at xxx@apache.org. 
  (''The ombudsman is an idea under discussion and does not currently exist'')
  
+ === Getting Stuck ===
+ 
  At times the process will be frustrating but ultimately it is designed 
  to get you to the goal of being an Apache TLP so be prepared to stick with 
  it for the long term.
+ 
+ Incubation exists as a transition stage into Apache and it is acceptable for 
+ some aspects (like legal concerns) to not be immediately solvable for whatever
+ reason.  Try not to let things like this get in the way of why you are participating 
+ in a podling to start with, presumably you have a strong interest in the software and 
+ in building a community around it or you wouldn't be here.
+ 
+ If yourself or your podling get derailed by one issue when there are others you can
+ be spending your volunteer time on go ahead and work on something else.  Occassionally
+ you may just get stuck completely, if that truly is the case use the channels detailed
+ above to seek guidance on moving forward.

   2. Apache only officially releases source code.  This may be a pain point for any existing
customers used to downloading binary packages.
   3. At Apache, open source isn't just about making released source code available.  It is
about trying to get the community involved early and often before the source code is "release-ready".
  
- While the two are very important from a legal perspective and are a blocker to graduation
ultimately 3 is the final blocker.  If your podling can not generate a sufficiently large
self-sustaining community then it is not going to succeed as an Apache project.

you'll find that ultimately 3 is the important blocker.  Yes you must get your legal ducks
in a row but if your podling can not generate a sufficiently large self-sustaining community
then it is not going to succeed as an Apache project.
