I fully agree with that, we should aim for podlings which are
"self-sustaining" in the sense that their mentors take care of them
with a minimal burden on the Incubator itself. That's self-regulating
based on the actual work that mentors are doing.

The downside of that is that we still need podlings to converge on a
common way of operating, so we need to make sure that the Incubator at
large takes a close look at the podling before graduating.

As mentioned before I think the project maturity model at
https://community.apache.org/apache-way/apache-project-maturity-model.html
is a good tool to help ask the right questions before graduation, and
I encourage every podling to publish their self-assessment based on
that before their graduation vote (example at [1]).
