I would HIGHLY suggest naming them like they would be named if built from 
maven to ease the transition later.   Thus:


That would be artifact id of apache-qpid-common and version number of

Again, use the full version number of 1.0-incubator-M1.

The incubator folks will complain if the artifacts don't say "incubator" 
in them someplace.   Yoko, Tuscany, CXF, and others have all gone with a 
version number of "#.#-incubator[-M#]" scheme.   Being consistent is 
probably good.

In the META-INF dir of each jar, you also need to have a DISCLAIMER 
(incubator disclaimer thing), the NOTICE, and the LICENSE file.
