This seems a little ridiculous.

What point is there in having something incubated if there are no users?
What sort of a community would it be that didn't accept feedback and
evolve based on that feedback?
How many users are willing to wait 6+ months to use something just
because it is undergoing incubation?
Why have releases from within the Incubator at all, in that case?
Surely one of the signs of a healthy community is well serviced users?

I understand the 'Incubation Process' doesn't take into account what
users do or need, but surely the Incubator PMC would see a lack of
user involvment as a negative point? To me that's one of the signs of
a community-less code dump.
