Not to beat a dead horse but if this is the case, then
what "benefit" does the Incubator provide to the ASF
in this case? None. Why have the Incubator involved at
all if we basically say "Yeah, yeah, if you say so,
it's fine with us."

Either the Incubator has this responsibility, or
it doesn't... IMO, due diligence, at least to me,
implies a bit more than "well, nobody complained" :)

In any case, I vote +1 for mod_wombat clearance.

PS: Yes, my POV is opposite from the written guidelines.
