So to repeat this to make sure I understand it correctly:

1) Key committers are new to Apache, then incubate (of which there are
many examples)
2) Key committers are old Apache hats, then code can fly straight to the TLPs?

What's the process for incubating code? Is it different if the code is
from ASF committers and non ASF committers? Currently I have
incubating code as meaning:

1) Get a Software Grant.

May sound like a question I've been asking for a few months, but
that's because although I know that the answer is to get the donater
of code to sign a Software Grant, my contact has been on a long
vacation so I'm kicking my heels :)
