Subject Disclaimer text for incubated projects
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2003 16:25:01 GMT
After getting positive feedback from this list about the idea of allowing
incubated projects to publish binary releases as long as they clearly
identified them as being part of an incubated project, I've written the
following paragraph to be used on the web site and inside the README 
file (in addition to using "incubated" in the file name of the download):

"XMLBeans is an incubated subproject under the sponsorship of the Apache 
Software Foundation's (ASF) XML project.  Incubation is required of all 
newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the 
infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have 
stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.  
While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the 
completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project 
has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF."

Please let me know if there are any suggestions or concerns about this
text; otherwise, I'll move forward with it.
