One doesn't preclude the other.  As I wrote in response to an almost
entirely different thread, Podlings are accountable to the Incubator
PMC.  A Project, Incubating would be accountable to the policies of
the Incubator VP.

Both can co-exist.  The documentation is near-identical.  One does
not have the independent ability to release code, the other does.
One changes their composition by notifying IPMC, the other would
change their composition by notifying the board.  One has no actual
titular head, but a vague 'Champion' and several 'Mentors' overseeing
the day to day operation and interaction in the project.  The other
would have a titular head, VP e.g. 'Champion', and several 'Mentors'
overseeing the day to day operation and interaction in the project.

One goes through a process to have the IPMC ratify that it is ready
to be a TLP, and the IPMC presents a resolution to the board to
establish a regular project of the ASF, and appointing its first
Chair/VP.  The other would self-certify the same graduation checklist,
and present a resolution to the board to establish a regular project
of the ASF, replacing the Project, Incubating committee, and appointing
an appropriate Chair/VP (to replace the Champion) at that time.

What is missing is the entry documentation into this process, and
the exit documentation from this process.  This is what I would hope
to present to the Board for consideration and generic right track/
wrong track guidance at their February meeting.
