Hmm very good point.  podlings.xml indicates they shouldn't have, but based
on when they entered the incubator they should have.  Even going back to
rev 1 of the page, they are missing.

https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/August2015?action=recall&rev=1

So does anyone have any recommendations on how to handle it?  I'll look at
the history to see why they were removed.
