 From what I've seen of the oversight provided by the incubator for  
podling releases, IP issues and licenses are not "being checked" but  
"have been checked".

I don't know to what other hoops you might be referring.  The podling  
is assumed to know what it is doing regarding content, functionality,  
etc. Everything done by the incubator to vet a release is done to  
protect Apache, such as appropriate licenses, notices, etc.
