Was it really necessary? In the meantime, Rob had edited the blog 
entries to insert:

(Apache OpenOffice is currently undergoing Incubation at the Apache 
Software Foundation.)

and this seems a good trade-off to me, much more than adding 
"(incubating)" to the title, which will confuse users, especially 
non-native speakers (but also native speakers won't always be able to 
guess what "incubating" means in this context).

Honestly, I'd be for linking "undergoing Incubation" (in the clauses Rob 
added) to Don's post or some more 
official explanation, and removing "(incubating)" from the titles.

This would give all interested parties the opportunity to discover what 
"incubating" means, which is probably the rationale behind the rule to 
use "(incubating)" everywhere, and at the same time would keep titles 
easily readable.
