This sounds good to me.  So I'd suggest the asterisk be labelled as
"Incubating" which ideally would be a link to /incubator for additional

Incidentally, I really wish we could change "GeoNetwork opensource" to
"GeoNetwork" or "GeoNetwork OS", and likelwise for MapGuide Open Source.
I think the long names end up being confusing on the side bar due to wrapping
and this is likely to be worse when there is an asterisk involved.
