afaik Apache Steve didn't go through the incubator, right?

Probably thats why they didn't do a name search:

I do not know if there is a policy for non-incubating
projects/products to do a podlingnamesearch. If there is one, it makes
certainly sense to rename the PODLINGNAMESEARCH into NAMESEARCH, move
my docs out to a better place (trademarks) and communicate the policy
to the projects (I didn't know much about podlingnamesearch until last
week - I  know a few people who all thought it would be a "lazy
consensus" thing).

That said, this is something which needs to be discussed on
trademarks. And it will take some time for which i do not have the
cycles right now.

My goal is to document what i have learned now in the hope it is of
help to other podlings which need this information.

Are you fine with my commit or do you first want to start discussing
at trademarks?
