Subject Re: [VOTE] $podling.apache.org is the same as $podling.incubator.apache.org

It’s easy to change content (e.g. the incubation disclaimer at the top of the home page
and in files that are part of the release) but it’s difficult to change URLs. Remember that
projects are ongoing operations, before and after graduation, and they are trying to reduce
friction in their process (e.g. being able to post a link from a StackOverflow article to
documentation on the project’s web site). Changing URLs is a significant bump in the road,
so removing that bump is most welcome.
