That happens when a proposal gets no mentors.  It could also
happen if a podling disregards our policies and does something that
could harm the ASF.  The responsible PMC or the board can kill a
project any time it wants, for whatever reason, so there is no need
write down all the possible ways that a project can be terminated.

When the incubator PMC gets around to removing the podling, which
isn't going to happen until someone asks us to do so.  Usually it
is whoever is listed as mentoring the podling.
