Thanks very much for this - it is useful and I think we should do that
for any "big" podling that comes in, from now on.

I don't think asking for budget is a task of the Incubator PMC, I would suggest

1. Incubator PMC/infra estimates the cost of new podlings as you did
2. Incubator PMC reports those numbers to ASF infra at regular
intervals, maybe just include them in their monthly reports
3. Infra adds the numbers up and if needed asks for more budget based
on these podlings

For now, considering that the numbers you indicate won't make a big
dent in the current infra budget [1] and considering that it's the
first time we do such an analysis I suggest for the infra team to
accept decoupling the NetBeans acceptance vote from the details of
these numbers, and we'll sort out the corresponding budget later at
the board / infra level.
