>> Background:
>> 
>>     o IRC channel #apache-incubator on irc.freenode.net
>>       (traffic is SUPPOSED to be logged to
>>       <URL:http://Source-Zone.Org/apache-irc/> so that
>>       the content of interactive discussions is available

>> 
>>     o Mailing lists:
>>       - general@incubator.apache.org (send to
>>         general-subscribe@incubator.apache.org)
>> 
>>       - pmc@incubator.apache.org (only for private communication)
>>         No project decisions will be made on the PMC list.
>> 
>>     o This status file is mailed to general@incubator.apache.org
>>       every Wednesday
>> 
>> Project committers (as of 2003-10-27):
>> 
>>     Note that the most current information is always in the CVS
>>     avail file, and can be found using:
>> 
>>         ssh cvs.apache.org
>>         cat /home/cvs/CVSROOT/avail | grep incubator
>> 
>> Release:
>> 
>>     The Incubator Project doesn't do "releases" itself. Track of
>>     releases made by projects in the incubator is kept in the
>>     per-project status files.
>> 
>> Possible topics for educational documents:
>> 
>>     o A document which describes the 'ideal' way a project has to
>>       go to be successfully integrated into the ASF: the flow of the
>>       normal incubation process should be pictured
>>     o Glossary of important ASF terms and phrases
>>       (this was considered as very helpful on the reorg@ list)
>>     o Compact, but also encyclopedic link-directory which points
>>       to important info on the other ASF sites (e.g. to the Jakarta
>>       Charter or to the HTTPd dev pages)
>>     o General License-/Licensing documentation (ASL1.1, ASL2.2,
>>       TCK, JSPA)
