On a related matter, how is the rename being handled for the various
incubator data files, web-pages, mailing lists etc.?

People need to be able to find the podling under its new name, and
clutch etc. need to be able to keep track of the podling status.
There need to be redirects added for web-pages if/when the old pages
are renamed.
