Yes quite. And lets not forget how the "rules" keep changing eg not so
long ago people were insisting that all sorts of stuff absolutely must
be put in the NOTICE file where as now it absolutely must NOT be
there, who know what it will be like next year.

And the Incubator _is_ different and does have different policy and
rules, hence on occasion podlings being permitted to do releases which
include GPL dependencies while Incubating and just fixing those up as
a graduation requirement.
