One current problem, that sometimes manifests itself, is that where 
mentors are active and able they sometimes find others who are not 
active in the specific project standing in the way.

Another current problem, that sometimes manifests itself, is where 
mentors are not active (or possibly able) projects are not experiencing 
the Apache Way, but their interpretation of it from poor documentation.

One current success is that where a project is lucky enough to have 
active mentors and few non-mentor interested parties the process works 
just fine.

My point is there is not only one way to do this. We need different 
models of incubation for different projects and communities.
