We're three days into incubation. Votes are still running on the form
for the repository, which bug tracker, mailing list migration, etc.
While that discussion/voting is running, I can deal with some of these
other issues dealing with graduation.

ICLAs are arriving, the repos should be imported within a couple
weeks, and account requests will go out in bulk before then.

I'm simply trying to parallelize the many tasks.
