Subject Re: Fwd: [ANN] Apache Syncope 1.0.0-RC3-incubating released
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 22:59:29 GMT
Bill,

the very first incubating project that posted a mail on announce@a.o was 
Tuscany, back in 2007...

In the past 5 years, just checking the incubating projects having used 
annouance@a.o, I see 140 messages.
18/5/2007 : [ANNOUNCE] Apache Tuscany SDO Java 1.0-incubating-beta1 released
4/7/2009 : [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.0-incubator released!
23/8/2007 : [ANNOUNCE] Apache UIMA 2.2.0-incubating
25/3/2008 : [ANN] Apache NMaven 0.15-incubating Released
25/6/2008 : [ANNOUNCE] Apache CouchDB 0.8.0-incubating has been released
15/2/2009 : [ANNOUNCE] Sanslean 0.97-incubating
21/2/2009 : [ANNOUNCE] Apache Click 2.0.1-incubating released
etc, etc.

I don't think that suddenly something has changed in the announc@a.o 
usage policy, related to Incubator releases.
