I'm left very unclear about what is allowed in a press release and  
what isn't.  Examples might be helpful.  Based on my confusion, I  
also don't understand why a press release saying that project X is  
starting incubation with community members x1, x2, x3, etc would be  
undesirable as long is it makes the incubation status clear.
