Hi Niclas!

First of all:
Hopefully INFRA will respond soon so we can all collaborate
on the content. At this point I've started the documentation to
the level of details currently on Incubator pages.

Could you elaborate on why do you think it is not necessary?

Great list! Added it to the dedicated section and plan to massage it
to the level
of details of the current Incubator process documentation.

Honestly, I think if that level is enough for the board to recognize Incubator
as legit it should be enough to recognize a pTLP.
