I'm not assuming anything. Users are well aware that projects reside
in the Incubator - especially with 'incubating' in the project
version. I even think Niclas's suggestion to also put 'incubator' in
the package name is a good idea because it would force the Maven
groupId element to be org.apache.incubator.<project>.

I still don't understand the benefit of an Incubator policy that force
users to overcome ill-documented (or even undocumented) hurdles like
the Maven repo policy. Whenever I explain it to someone (and I have to
do this a lot) they ask me why it's so difficult and non-standard. I
explain the rationale behind the policy and they tell me it's just an
unnecessary pain - that they're clearly aware the project resides in
the Incubator.
