Regarding the name: One of the 1st efforts will be a renaming of the project.

Certainly this is a concern of all incoming podlings though, isn't it? Isn't the goal of Incubator
to ensure, as much as possible, that the podling DOES develop into a community? So why the
overdue concern, if overdue is correct, about this one?

Both Kevin and Von are members. How much more experience would you like? Should I ask for
additional Mentor volunteers? This sometimes happens organically when a VOTE is run, but,
as Champion, I can make a specific request. What qualifications would you accept as reasonable
to alleviate your concern?
