+0 (who cares about maven? ;)

There are immature projects in the Incubator, and their release  
practices are questionable (code quality is pretty much good to great  
around here, so no worries there).  We'd be doing a disservice to  
Apache for tarnishing its "brand" (nologo anyone?) by in any way  
implying that all incubating projects are on the same level of  
maturity that our top level projects are (or should be, of course).   
An incentive to graduating incubation is to earning the trust of the  
community by showing we can follow the guidelines set forth on  
licensing, IP, legal verbiage, and so on.  I'm more guilty than most  
here for claiming IANAL, but I'm darn glad that there are checks and  
balances here and savvy folks to oversee these details.  Important  
stuff, folks.
