the incubator linking the to existing documentation

cool. the wiki's great for capturing unofficial tips and best practice.
would be a good to develop an incubator guide for new release managers and
the wiki's probably the best place.

really need to try to find time to get to grips with the documentation on
the foundation and incubator sites. been thinking about making this a goal
of mine for infrathon/hackthon in dublin (though sorting out my flights is
another job i should have done but haven't).
