I agree with what you said earlier - "incubation should be rigorous and
short" - and that is possible for some podlings (existing open source
projects with a diverse, meritocratic community) - but much harder for
others (single company, closed source).

One reason for allowing the podling.a.o that has come up for geode is that
they need to relocate their Schema locations from their corporate site - if
they have to do it once to podling.i.a.o and then later to podling.a.o then
its doubly painful for their users. While we don't want podlings to get
comfortable, we do want them to succeed and to mininise the pain of
transition to their users.

As Rob said, if they're  following the other branding requirements, then do
we need to continue enforcing the subdomain requirement?

For me (and on behalf of Geode) I think we she leave the current status quo.
