Yup :-)

I did this so that it's easier to start a project status file and keep 
track of it. I did not update the STATUS files though, as we need a new 
format for them.


Mods and better layout welcome.

Yup. That was made by Roy as Geronimo has other incubation docs that 
need a place.

Unfortunately, this breaks the layout as I intended to have:

  incubator/projects/projectname.cwiki  (status file)
  incubator/projects/projectname/**     (site)[1]

In fact [1] is where altrmi and ftpserver and geronimo are publishing 
their site.

The problem comes from the fact that ftpserver and altrmi have the site 
in their space, and just use that URL as a publishing space. If they 
need to place the same extra incubation docs as geronimo, they will have 

So we could do:

  incubator/status/projectname.cwiki         (status file)
  incubator/status/projectname/status.cwiki  (alt status file)
  incubator/projects/projectname/**          (site)


  incubator/projects/projectname.cwiki         (status file)
  incubator/projects/projectname/status.cwiki  (alt status file)
  incubator/projects/projectname/site/**       (site)

I would like to see it, yes.

The status files are ATM not very uptodate, and some projects are 
keeping their status files in their own cvs structures.

We need to sort this out first IMHO. Let's finish a new version of the 
status file, and start using that for the Directory project.
