Do you see why we might be confused?  But we can worry about the  
naming later.

It will be necessary before anything can be done with the code and in  
this case, likely a Software Grant Agreement would need to be  
executed and potentially a Corporate Contributor License Agreement  
depending on your employment situation.

Incubator is the mechanism that non-ASF code is brought into ASF.  If  
you are IBM and want to donate a database (Derby) or a SourceForge  
project (log4net, log4cxx) that wants to move to ASF, you must go  
through the incubation process to make sure that the transfer of  
intellectual property rights is legally defendable and that a healthy  
community is formed.

A sandbox is an area for Apache developers to experiment.  The code  
is ASF code (due to our CLA's and our intentionally committing of the  
code to the Apache SVN) from the beginning and does not need the  
legal review necessary for an incubated project.  Sandbox efforts may  
or may not result in a viable long term product.

Changing "Implementation" to "Integration" might preserve the acronym  
while bringing it closer to what the code does.
