Hi Henri,

We're mostly done with incubation. The only real issue is that there  
has never been an official Apache-branded release of JSPWiki. There  
have been releases done "the Apache way" by the team, but they were  
not Apache branded and were published outside the Apache  
infrastructure. So the group has never gone through the rite of  
passage called "make an Apache release".

Any insights you have are certainly appreciated.
