FWIW, freemarker.incubator.apache.org redirects to freemarker.org, there
were prior discussions on it.  I think the podling should have a project
specific goal of implementing both an apache.org presence and freemarker.org
presence, in alignment with prior trademark comments.  At least in my
opinion that should be a pre-requisite for graduation.

I'll take a closer look at the release tonight and provide a vote.
