My rule of thumb is generally "be able to tell exactly what it is by  
looking at it". I don't want to have to open a text editor to know  
exactly what it is. Just like I don't want to have to crack open the  
manifest of a JAR to see exactly what it is. Given that proviso maybe  
"apache-incubator", or "apache-incubator-podlings". Though we don't  
have a guideline for parent POM naming I generally use the project  
name as all the other artifacts in the project are an extension of  
that i.e. maven-core, maven-artifact ...
