I don't think, this is a competitor of the incubator. I believe it's the  
step before. To start new projects from the scratch. But in difference to  
GitHub clearly under the Apache Way. Remember you can not start a project  
at the incubator. Witch is good on one side, but nasty on the other. At  
the Moment you are forced to go outside Apache to bring the project back  
to apache soon after. I mean, this makes no sense. I think this gab has to  
be closed. Apache Labs can do that job very well.

For me it looks like the Apache Lab was a playground for devs in the past.  
If so, then I agree, a playground is not really useful anymore. There are  
enough playgrounds around. But if you start a new project, and you already  
know, that the project should go to Apache, then you have no support from  
the ASF. This should change.

PS: I bet, many of us has already a project in mind ;-)
