I wrote this meaning that Woden isn't production ready but can now see
you could interpret my words as meaning all incubator podlings aren't
production ready - which certainly isn't the case. I hope this isn't
a' Freudian slip' on my part and if it is then is solely because I
have limited exposure to podlings other than Woden. So I apologise.

IMHO, the confusion arises because the podlings aren't *endorsed* as
Apache projects. Making a leap from that to 'is not production ready'
is wrong.
