Nope, I just prefer to say "drafts" than "wiki" as it describes what it 
contains rather than how it's written.

On my HD I have renamed "Final Drafts" as "Incubation RFC" (Request for 
Comment), as they are something that we are building upon.

If "drafts" is a too strong term we can use another one, the important 
thing is that it describes that there we have docs that are not endorsed 
in any way.

We have to redo all project status sections. Any idea about how to show 
a project incubation status better?

I'll commit later today the newest layout so we can finally move there 
the site and start working on it together.

In the meantime is anyone can post examples of how we can make project 
incubation status pages, one page per project, it would be really great.
