Subject Re: Incubator POM as parent for podlings

Thanks Jason. I added this to svn in public/trunk/pom with a 1- 
SNAPSHOT version. As you say, small errors could be problematic so I  
would appreciate if it could be reviewed. If it's OK and after we  
vote is it just a matter of using the release plugin to tag/publish it?
