Subject Re: [doc] "How to graduate from the incubator" topic

Here's a few:
[ ] Submit Infra request to move mailing lists and archives. For
example in a TLP, the ppmc list is renamed to pmc. sometimes the name
of the mailing list needs to be updated (if there is a name change
[ ] Update information in JIRA/Bugzilla for the project.

Off the top of my head a few more things for a TLP:
Infra folks have additional work for a TLP (for example they have to
add DNS entries). If it is a TLP, several locations in
needs to get updated as well. One more thing the PMC has to get on a
schedule for reporting to the board, there is a committee.txt that
needs to be updated.
