It is a transition phase.  As with sensory systems, liminal phenomena are
amongst the most interesting and challenging things to deal with.

So here are some criteria to balance:

  (1) support existing user community
  (2) move development to ASF
  (3) to support (1), maintain release
  (4) meet ASF requirements regarding Incubator branding,
      which are specifically designed to protect users in
      the event of incubation failure (and we have had at
      least 5 projects fail that I can think off off-hand).
      Largely, we tacitly discourage users from participating.
  (5) don't making doing all this so hard that it isn't worth

How to do it?  Well, that's the challenge.
