Not really, AFAIK. You will have to do extra work to integrate in the DB 
site, but I don't understand what "significant amount of unnecessary 
work" you need to do just to publish under the incubator.

Maybe one thing is not clear: you *don't* have to use Forrest to build 
your site. What we request is *just* the publishing of it under the 
incubator URL, and using the Incubator logo. If this is too much...

True, the Incubator version will be a subset of the final one. A very 
small disruption IMHO.

I have already explained that this, in turn, creates other problems. Our 
goal is not only to settle in new projects, but to ensure that projects 
that should not proceed do *not* settle in right away.
