You cannot put a time on how long the incubation will actually take 
because things change and you never know if the podling is actually 
meeting up to the requirements.

There is a lot of sense and response that goes on.  Also the incubator 
PMC must get a good feel of how well the podling is doing.  This 
impression they get does not happen overnight nor does it happen on the 
schedule imposed by a podling.

As a mentor I would advise projects to put there energies towards other 
persuits which would yield a bigger return in their efforts to graduate 
in a timely fashion.
