Here is some draft content:
*As a Software Foundation OSGeo is responsible for supporting our great
collection of projects, and fostering new talent and innovation. OSGeo
helps projects technically, supporting developers with a community of their
peers, socially with community building and outreach, and professionally
ensuring that each project is governed in a fair and sustainable manner.*
*OSGeo Community** projects are lightweight, innovative, and **in the
process of building their community. OSGeo provides community projects
friendly environment for collaboration and innovation.*
*OSGeo Projects are established, trusted and have shown themselves to be
sustainable. In addition being open source, participatory and geospatial
these projects have met our stringent “incubation” requirements.*
*The Incubator committee is responsible for welcoming community projects
into our foundation, and running the incubation process to **recognize**

>> Yeah I agree with you, checking the wiki we are known as the Incubator

>>> Just my 2 cents.
