Subject Re: Releases during incubation?

Yup. Subversion 1.6.9 was released while we were incubating.

Further: Subversion 1.6.x had patch releases for three years (given our
support rules), after we became Apache Subversion. 1.7.0 was our first
Apache release, occurring about 18 months after we became a TLP. We
distinguished them by name (Subversion vs Apache Subversion), and by
release channel/host (tigris.org vs apache.org). The same people happened
to work on both releases, but we made sure to distinguish non-Foundation
releases.
