I'm no expert on Apache or Incubator branding, but I would expect to
see the disclaimer in the following places:

    * Front page of the project web site
    * Release notes
    * README files
    * Press releases
    * Email announcements

I.e. the places where a person would first look when encountering the project.

Note that the above list is not carved in stone, for example in the
recent Yoko release I considered it acceptable, though not necessarily
preferable, that the disclaimer was in a DISCLAIMER.txt file instead
of the README file.
