Without value or standpoint; The "alpha" and "beta" markers are
technical indicators on code quality. The "incubating" marker is said
to be an indicator of "community quality".

Standpoint; I still think podling releases should be fully endorsed
Incubator PMC releases. It solves ALL issues. If PMC Members don't
feel that the community is there yet, the release will not happen. If
the PMC think that the podling is ready to graduate, then the release
will happen, and graduation shortly after.
