How about something like:
Apache {projectname} (Incubating) vM.mQB ?

e.g. "Apache Beehive (Incubating) v1.0R555"

We already require the word "incubating" in the filenames, but things
like TheServerSide posts wouldn't normally mention this.  I'm
suggesting that the name of the release always include "(Incubating)"
wherever it is mentioned.
