That plus, I would like to see that ALL podling are also released under the 
org.apache.incubator.<project> groupId in Maven, which makes manual check for 
incubating projects simple, i.e. check if there is a 
$HOME/.m2/repository/org/apache/incubator directory, and if so what project 
that is. 
If Maven also could be fitted to know that org.apache.incubator groupId should 
be treated with a warning (and possibly a 'confirm' mechanism), then even 
better. But I don't hope for that...
