When you talk about "repositories" it makes me very nervous. Maven  
does not do a good job with multiple repositories. [If you have a  
single SNAPSHOT dependency, maven searches through every repository  
looking for each SNAPSHOT at least once per day and if the repository  
is not extremely responsive, you end up wasting a lot of time.]

So if we choose for special incubator repositories, I'd have to vote  
in favor of a single incubator repository not multiple repositories.

But having read all of the other responses as of right now, I don't  
see any issues with using the standard maven repository for  
publishing incubating project release artifacts. The releases are  
official incubating artifacts that have been through release  
clearance and as long as they are correctly identified with "- 
incubating" in their [version id, artifact id, or group id], IMHO no  
one will be confused about the status of the artifact.

And whether to put "-incubating" into the group id, artifact id, or  
version id, I'd leave that decision up to the project. My own  
preference is in the version id, but I can see reasons for projects  
preferring the "-incubating" flag in any of the maven name locations.
