but that's *not* all it's supposed to be doing.  that's the stuff
it *must* do for the legal well-being of the asf.  for the social
well-being, it also is supposed to ensure that people coming in
with a new codebase understand how the asf works, how the voting
model functions, the release process, peer review, et cetera.  one
of the reasons the incubator came into existence was because apparently
a *lot* of people had become committers withoug any of that ever being
made clear.  ref the 'why the hell should i want to be an asf member'
discussion last year.
