Subject Re: Incubator, or "Incubation"?
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 14:55:57 GMT
Isn't there also something along the lines of what's called "culpable
deniability"?  Since podlings may be in states where their offerings
might not be as legal as TLPs (licensing issues, trademark/branding
issues, etc.), is it not more convenient for them to be relegated to
an area specifically designated as "not officially supported"?  This
is very clearly demarked by a subdomain and a subproject, and if
there's to be a subdomain and a subproject it makes sense that there
are people specifically managing them.

I submit that the IPMC is an effect of the incubator rather than a
cause.  I think the mechanisms need to be in place so that
not-yet-legal projects can exist and work on becoming legal projects,
and that it's just as well that staff exists to manage them.
