documentation? Do I need to have the disclaimer on wiki pages that provide
documentation, too? For example:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TRAFODION/Trafodion+Contributor+Guide

If both are required, then I'd suggest that a single ASL+disclaimer
statement with guidance is provided.

Also, I'd like to point out that graduation now means that the project has
to go hunt for every place it mentions incubation to pull out the
disclaimer.

It's seems to me that the easier approach is to redirect $
project-name.apache.org to $project-name.incubator.apache.org and do
something similar for the wiki. That way, the incubation status is quite
clear.
