If we vote to graduate, and then want to do a release, I think there's a
lot of work to accomplish before the release such as:
a) moving the project out of the incubator - including changing the svn,
mailing lists, and our web-site
b) changing our build process to remove the incubating disclaimer

Is this correct?  If so, I think it would delay our release, probably. 
So unless we could release just as we are now, (I'm about to call for
the release vote for RC 9) I would favor releasing first, and then
trying to graduate.

Also, graduation is not a for-sure thing - there might be an extended
discussion regarding whether or not we have enough diversity.  But I am
glad that one of our mentors thinks it's likely to go through, easily !
