Is there some more background available on why the barrier is set this
low in the incubator? It seems unnatural to me. A large part of
incubation of course is to attract new committers, but why not let the
podling decide on which barrier it wants to use?

I'd expect apache committers or members that are interested in a
podling's product will express that by joining with code and/or
documentation improvements, and as a result get voted in as committers
just like anyone else.

In fact, the Incubation Policy says about mentors (section Committers
at the bottom of [1]):
"On acceptance of a candidate project, the assigned Mentors shall be
given access to the Podling's repository for the duration of the
incubation process. [...]
To be given full committer privileges, such as the right to add new
code to the repository, the Mentor must earn them as would any other
potential new committer."

I'm not specifically against it, I just like to understand why this is
a good idea.
