One issue is making releases. If you have a small community, then growing
it is much easier if you have an active series of releases. It garners
attention. Unfortunately, incubating projects have a little harder time
making releases (either the initial release getting things in order, or
gathering three +1 votes if they're small)

Justin and I moved serf out of the ASF because it was too small at the
time. We didn't have a community to make proper ASF releases.
