Mature projects arrive here and go into incubation. I'd like to see production cases use the
existing mature project distributions and use the incubator releases as test subjects. YMMV.

does "degrade". 

Maybe you and I have different standards for production. Take a mature project, add a few
hundred lines of code, and it's no longer the mature project you are using in production.
