For a very first release attempt, I think the project did a good job, and it would definitely
demonstrate "getting the Apache way" by taking all the suggestions and incorporating them
in the next release. Yes, the "incubator rules" are not always written down well/correctly
so releasing something will always trigger some amount of discussion. In that sense the incubator
itself is also constantly improving.
