Ted, is this opinion or policy? I don't want to affect this list with 
the turmoil of the policy discussions over at general@incubator, but I 
wonder why a healthy project cannot continue releasing stuff using its 
normal pre-incubation release schedule after it went into ASF 
incubation. Looking at Tapestry (and Lenya), there wasn't such a strict 
requirement w.r.t. release naming, and they continued releasing stuff as 
they were used to.

IMHO, requiring to prepend a new XMLBeans release with 
under-incubating-foo.tgz would somehow imply that the quality of the 
XMLBeans dist has decreased in quality or robustness.

What do you think?
