I don't think that's a big problem with the description because it
should rarely change.

The description is not really status information and should not change
often; also I don't think it would be possible to propagate it to all
the places that need it.

Most of the status information is held in the podling status pages
[1]; in theory the information therein could be used to create the
Incubated (sic) Projects page [2] and the RHS Projects menu [3].

Failing that, it would be nice to be able to maintain [2] and [3] from
a single file that listed all Incubator projects in an easy-to-use
format.
i.e. rather than update [2], one could update an alphabetical list of
projects containing the basic status fields.

In fact the project summary would be useful anyway, so perhaps one
could start with it, and then work out how to maintain it from the
podling status pages.

S.
P.S. Anyone fancy creating an index podling?!
