The Incubator's charter from the board says:

        RESOLVED, that the Apache Incubator PMC be and hereby is
        responsible for the acceptance and oversight of new products
        submitted or proposed to become part of the Foundation; and be

Previously, the board had to deal with this directly.  The board delegated 
this to the Incubator PMC.

opportunities to seed a story is 'nice' behavior.

Note that my suggestion w.r.t. blocking projects from PR was just that - a 
suggestion.  I don't set policy by myself.  -- justin
