IIRC the incubator doesn't have any documentation addressing the
communication side of community building. i've been reluctant to
tackle this in the past (since it's even more subjective than the
rest) but i wonder whether some podlings don't understand rules aimed
at helping them build a strong and open community.

i've created a JIRA

can add tips or longer prose. please feel free to jump in and add
comments. once there's a critical mass then we can try to pull
together some prose so don't worry about the style - just get down
