What actually does a Champion do? Docs say he helps with finding a sponsor...

A project can put the name "Incubator" as a sponsor as you said and
see what happens. If somebody thinks on general@ a project fits
perfectly to another one, then he probably says it. Therefore I really
don't see the need for a role like a champion.

If you ask me, I would delete the whole champion thing from the docs
and rephrase the link I sent to: ask an existing project to sponsor
you or put incubator into the sponsoring section.

Learning the apache way is what mentors usually help with
