or FreeBSD ;-)

i use:

grep incubator /etc/group

but those with more BSD-fu usually have more elegant solutions than mine...

the basic infrastructure rule is one group per TLP. so, whilst UIMA is
in the incubator, the incubator group should be used. if UIMA
gradulates to a TLP then a new uima group will be created and that
group should be used for releases. if UIMA graduates as a subproject
of Project Cool (say) then group cool will be used for releases.
