All significant incoming IP must be submitted to the incubator, see some
rare posts by Roy Fielding of his IP review on behalf of httpd.

Beyond incoming IP, it is the project's decision if a group of committers
and their effort need to be incubated, or if it's just a new group of
committers on existing apache code they are willing to handle, or if it's
just familiar committers on a new code base that fits within the project's

Things that don't fall into an existing project's scope must either be
submitted to incubator, or a new PMC resolution proposed to the board
(and there probably better be a good rational for why incubator should
not handle the creation of that effort, since the board created the
incubator for a good reason.)
