It is probably more a matter of *how* the requests
should be done. There is a tendency for things to fall
through cracks if procedure is not followed.

It hurts to see these holdups for projects and new
communities.

I have a hard time finding the list of steps that
new projects need to go though to get established.

Lets try to clearly define those and add to the docs.

The closest document seems to be
http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Setting+Up+a+New+Podling
and that is not much help. Let us fix it.

The next thing that i tried is the top-level docs
http://www.apache.org/dev/#mail
http://www.apache.org/dev/#svn
... yeah, i know that the "how to make a request" docs
are empty. A volunteer-run organisation. Help please.

http://www.apache.org/dev/#pmc
This does have some general techniques for seeking
infrastructure help.

This Post-Graduation Check List
http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Post-Graduation+Check+List
provides some guidance.

The general principles seem to be for the mentors
to send email to the relevant infrastructure address
and be sure to Cc their PMC. Incubator podlings also
Cc the Incubator PMC.

Some docs suggest to create a Jira issue as well as
the email (but not for account requests).

So how about this ...

For mail issues, send to apmail@ + Jira.
Use the provided template.

For svn creation, send to infrastructure@ + Jira
Use the provided template.

For account creation, send to root@ using separate
requests for each new committer. Follow the instructions
and template at http://www.apache.org/dev/#pmc

Are those steps and principles suitable? If so then
i will add them to the missing documents at a.o/dev/
and add to i.a.o/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html
