I'm speaking for MapProxy and I'm already subscribed to the list.

I've added links to the user and developer documentation on the MapProxy Labs page: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Labs:_MapProxy

"Estimated number of users" is difficult, but MapProxy is used by federal and state agencies around the world. You can get some download numbers here https://pypi.python.org/pypi/MapProxy
We don't have a "Branding Guide" and there are no "Events Planned" (except from presentations at FOSS4G and FOSSGIS). "Documentation Planned"? No, we already have docs :)

As for the incubation: We already applied and we even have/had a mentor (Howard Butler), but this is currently on hold because we are still lacking a larger developer community. The git repository lists 19 contributers, but most of their contributions where rather small. The last release contained two larger features by external contributors though. We will have to see how this develops.
