IMHO, avoiding establishing TLP-like procedures for fear that a
podling may not graduate (or postponing establishing those procedures
until graduation) is self-defeating.

Speaking as a member of a recently-graduated podling that joined the
Incubator with an established user base, I think we would not have
done as well without a user@ list.
