I'm a little confused.  I'm reading a really long rant here, but I expect
if you look at what nearly all mentors do in their respective podlings,
this is exactly what they provide (granted, with wildly varying degrees
of effort or attention).

Quite frankly, all svncorp releases could, with reasonable documentation
[read: mailing list archives, CLA's and code grant] be licensed as ASF
releases under the AL 2.0, irrespective of their internal artifact
copyright statements.

A proviso that 1.7.0 won't be approved without running it through RAT,
either pre or post graduation seems sufficient.  The process is better
documented than 95% of ASF project release processes, so there's no issue.

But ranting against your perception of Incubator's failure to EDUCATE and
TEACH podlings how the ASF environment works is really quite disappointing,
coming from you.
