that's how i read that document too

but on the normative
there is:

"Should the Incubator PMC, in accordance with these guidelines vote to
approve the request, the Podling MAY perform the release under the
following constraints :

    * the release archive MUST contain the word "incubating" in the
filename; and
    * the release archive MUST contain an Incubation disclaimer (as
described in the previous section), clearly visible in the main
documentation or README file."

since it's policy, it is a blocker

unless anyone gets there first, i'll update the branding and release
guidelines to include a link to this section

>  (If not, other podlings aren't including "Incubator" in the name.)

i didn't realise that this was required (so that's not on my list of checks)

sorry for not picking this up sooner but it needs to be renamed

(if we had something like the all pmc's list for ppmc'ers might be a
good idea to post a reminder to everyone...)
