I'm sorry I missed the deadline. I'm supposed to get some time off work at
the end of the week, and I've added this to my task list. Just to clarify,
I'm going to work on the following tasks:

- Edit the incubation committee web page on the new web site to focus on
(1) discussing the benefits of incubation and (2) inviting projects to join.
- Moving all content that doesn't fit into those two categories to our
incubation committee wiki page.
- Doing some general clean-up of our incubation wiki pages.
