Well, the status file in the incubator CVS is about *incubation* status, 
so it should contain all and only the items that are relevant to incubation.

If projects use a STATUS file to record their project chores and issues, 
it's their business.

Furthermore incubator/$projectname is exactly like all other projects do.

Before I'd like to see if others have comments on it.


* maybe it's better to list project resources as a table
* the action items are stated as questions: is it ok?
* maybe it's better if with __DONE__ they add the name of the
   person saying so (CVS history is impractical) and add
   at least a reference to what may prove it (for some action items)
