Most of those announcements do seem to at least mention something
about incubating, the release management guide is a bit sparse though,
I think we should update the release management guide to at least
mention that announcements must follow the branding guidelines at
http://incubator.apache.org/guides/branding.html, and say poddling
announcements must mention that its incubating and perhaps include the
full disclaimer text in the email.
