The same rules apply for all top level projects, as I understand it,
except that the IPMC is not in the loop:
 - the PMC needs to accept (vote on) the release
 - the code needs to be completely free of legal issues regarding licenses, etc.
 - the released artifacts need to have proper NOTICE and LICENSE files
in the right places, etc.
 - the community should work in the Apache Way (tm), or else how could
they have become a TLP?

The biggest difference is that the code in the incubator typically
comes from an external source and needs to transition from non-Apache
licensed to Apache licensed. And the community needs to learn how to
work the Apache Way.
