Thanks, but IIRC even IP Clearance takes a route through the Incubator, and I 
can't recall seeing anything about it. And as Justin pointed out, I can't 
find any mentioning of it anywhere...

It also brings some questions about the "mail size limits" as the original 
commit (r167904) didn't make it to the James commit list[1] since it was too 
large, hence any large commit can go fairly unnoticed. Instead 
of 'discarding' large mails, could ezmlm 'chop it down' to a smaller size??

If this happens in James, where the Incubator PMC Chair is active, alert and 
well-informed, how many other projects do the things that are not proper??
