The site says "plugins provided by community
members and third-party companies" so I doubt Oracle has the rights to
donate all that code to us. Sorry that we missed that during the
proposal preparation phase.

If that's correct I would suggest keeping the
migration out of the incubation proposal, and letting Apache NetBeans
handle that later. That might just be suggesting to move that code to
GitHub and creating an alternate plugin installation mechanism that
grabs whatever it needs there.

It looks like those plugins are clearly "code associated with an
Apache project" once NetBeans migrates to the ASF, but code that
probably shouldn't belong to the ASF.

Owners of specific plugins will still be able to donate them as well,
separately, once Apache NetBeans is established, via our IP clearance
