I've said before: I don't think the Incubator gets to vote on accepting a
project or not. Some other ASF PMC says "we want this project to migrate
into the ASF" [after whatever vote] and sends the project to the Incubator.
The Incubator then processes it. Upon completion, the new project is part of
the original PMC.

There is the possibility that PMCs will overburden the Incubator with
incoming projects. Fine... the incubator just slows down on its processing.
But the original PMC that *did* the loading will then want to lend a hand.

The Incubator PMC *does* vote on the release of a project -- has the project
met the required steps/guides/"paperwork".
