I view general@incubator as a podling-wide mailing list,
where podlings can share experience and lessons-learned.
A sort of group mind of all podlings, so to speak.

But *how* each individual podling "matures" and
"grows" and "incubates" is a personal journey done
on the podling PPMC and dev lists.
