Sorry to come in late but I had a look at [1] and it's way too
complicated IMO, and I don't think the proposed patch helps with that.

In general http://incubator.apache.org/ is way too verbose and hard to
maintain - removing everything that is not essential would help IMO.

With this in mind, I would remove almost everything from the "What is
retirement" section and keep just

****
A retired project is a project which has been closed down for various
reasons, instead of graduating as an Apache project. It is no longer
developed in the Apache Incubator and does not have any other duties.

The project's code might stay available on Apache servers, if all the
required IP clearance requirements have been met.

Retirement is a decision of the Incubator PMC, which usually delegates
it to the incubating project's mentors. The opinion of the incubating
project's community should of course be taken into account, but in the
end it's the Incubator PMC which makes the decision.

And also keep the "steps to retirement" section.
