In general, I like it very much and I think it should
be prominently displayed on Incubator web someplace.

For as long as there was a talk about Ombudsman the very
idea of something like that in ASF has rubbed me the wrong
way. The best way I can explain it is that it feels very artificial
and asymmetric: suppose you are a committer on project "foo"
and you feel like what's going on in the project is counterproductive
to the ASF's charter. What's your recourse? Why isn't it the
same for the poddling?

Thanks,
Roman.
