Help Wanted!

People with commit access to the "incubator" git repository can edit the source documents in the "content" directory. That is any ASF Member and any committer on a current podling in incubation. So you can all help to keep your project’s Status page up-to-date, and if you find problems with the "guidelines" docs then can immediately fix them. If unsure, then discuss changes on the general mailing list. Note that the "policy" documents need special treatment and discussion on the general mailing list.

Anyone else can send patches to those documents to the INCUBATOR issue tracker.
