Keep in mind that I can see the use of JIRA for an incubation iniative 
as something seperate for a projects own use of JIRA for bug tracking.  
An incubator view is all about actions facilitating exit (exit bugs).  I 
bet that if incubator projects could push up and maintain their top 
three open actions - then more people could help out simply because they 
can see what a project is asserting at the topics it needs incubation 
help on.

Ask the following question:

* what are the top three things for FTP or Directory or Xxxx to move it 
towards exit

I could spend an afternoon trying to put the answer together - and I'd 
be guessing alot along the way.  Irrespective of the mechanisms used - 
providing a way for incubating projects to push actions up to the 
incubation community is going address the concern you raised about 
sharing the load.

Cheers, Stephen.
