Interesting and I think this is really good (writes a guy who discussed 
the rules a lot).

The problem we wanted to solve (i think) was: how can we keep our 
incubator list
clean and be pro-active when it comes to housekeeping?

If the IPMC would look at the reporting podlings each month and check if
retirement is needed, then the above phrase might make perfect sense.

Some might consider it "unfair" to be retired. In example, some projects 
Wave look inactive but there is some life left. Retire or not? It's 
There is a good chance we keep some long-term running projects, but on 
the other hand...
what would it matter?

That being said, I would love if the other docs would get such an 
haircut as well.
