Subject Re: Incubator artifacts and repositories

So as I see it, it comes down to a choice of having the user configure
his pom with either
1) an artifact id or group id or version id that includes "incubator" in it.
2) a repository id that include "incubator" in it.

#1 is what most projects do today.  It would be nice if they were more
consistent about how they include "incubator" in the artifact id.

If we go with #2 I think most podlings would like it better since they
can then avoid having incubator  in the artifact id.  This in turn
would mean there is less work when the podling needs to graduate since
dependent projects would not need to change artifact ids.
