Ah. Excllent point, which I hadn't considered. I completely agree.

The point which I've made in the past, but would like to reiterate is that I

For totally new projects with no destination? Then I honestly have no idea
how to provide the "training" for those people. I don't believe the
Incubator can do it, but I'm also not going to even try to obstruct others
who feel it is (I'd just hope people provide due consideration to whether
the Incubator is the right approach). i.e. within my time constraints, I'd
happily participate in verifying that logistical requirements have been met,
