Cameron, I do not like your (or marketing's) proposal - it seems to
me, it's too towards-incubation oriented. But it has some important
details. I also think, 4 and 5 should be merged.
I propose following version:
1 - Project has name, OSI license, header files are clean, can be in beta stage
2 - Project is stable, produces (or produced in the past) stable releases
3 - Project has Stable Software, a Stable community, is deployed in
production systems, and is ready to pass criteria to enter incubation,
4 - Project has passed osgeo incubation, it also includes bundled
software, regular builds, security updates, training, etc.
