Hey all,

On the following page:

The process steps do not align with the intent described in the Preamble,
and some steps are not required. Specifically, steps 5, 7, and 8.

Step 5: the code will be imported *somewhere*; there is no reason for it to
be duplicated into the Incubator repository. The ASF simply requires
paperwork to acknowledge the propriety of that import, wherever it may be.
There isn't even a reason for a checksum.

Step 7: the Incubator has no prerogative over what the VP of an Apache
project does (or other Officers, for that matter). If a TLP wants some
code, then they can do so. And the representative of that TLP (the VP, an
Officer) is the one taking responsibility for their actions. The Incubator
has been a recording area, but that doesn't give it discretion over other
[ IMO, the recording should go somewhere identified by VP Legal Affairs,
and be entirely disconnected from the Incubator ]

Step 8: moot, once (7) is removed.

I'd like to modify the steps to reflect the above points.
