And I'm fine with that.  I think it's a good idea for Incubating
projects to do at least one release before graduating.

My concerns are:

1) The policy regarding podling releases has never been explicit and
always been conflicting

2) Let's not (again) fall into the trap of changing the requirements
of graduation (or entry for that matter) on a vote thread

So could we move these discussions to a new thread?
