+Apache Bigtop is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software
+Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC.
+Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review
+indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process
+have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.
+While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness
+or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be
+fully endorsed by the ASF.
+For more information about the incubation status of the Whirr project you
