When the Incubator was set up, there was a recognition that PMCs could
not simply tell the Incubator "please incubator <this> project for us.
kthxbai." That the PMC would have to provide help.

However... that has completely disappeared. Effectively, "all"
arriving projects are not attached to an existing PMC. Thus, the
"staffing" is generally non-existent, and problems have ensued.

It's a difficult issue :-(
