We have decided that this is the policy that has to be used for all 
projects that still have to setup a website. We have not decided what to 
do with current projects, although we would certainly appreciate if 
something like this can be done.

As for the implementation of it for projects that already have a site, 
Noel's was just an example of what can be done, not of what has to be 
done. More sophisticated things can be done with mod_rewrite:

Practically publishing under the incubator rather than under Cocoon is 
really trivial, it just needs to do the CVS update from the incubator 
dir on the web server, but the problem is with legacy links, and AFAIK 
it can be solved.

What do others think?

I'm personally fine with either solution for projects in the same 
situation as Lenya (ie publishing under incubator or current place and 
redirecting from the other site), as long as the logo is changed to be 
the one of the Incubator Project and not that of the final proposed
