Oscar 1.0 became Apache Felix (incubating), and Richard Hall is still 
supporting the Oscar users, and I think even made a bugfix release of it.

I guess you could ask the Incubator PMC for an explicit approval to continue 
to use Wicket for both the 1.x and 2.x branches, but only incubating the 
latter. (I could be wrong, but didn't SpamAssassin do something like that?)

OTOH, as Leo points out, going through a couple of point releases while in the 
Incubator would also speed up the graduation process, i.e. you guys already 
operate the community closely to how ASF expects the project to be run, so 
the 'learning part' is (I think) fairly small, and the main issues are 
 1. Vet the IP.
 2. Do the paper work.
 4. Demonstrate the community ability, that I think you already got.

And you could be out of the incubator in "no time"...

If you choose to continue the releases outside the Incubator, then the 
incubation period will probably be longer, as your abilities are not in open 
view for the PMC to enjoy.
