Fully agree with that... I was just taking the point of view of a
project currently developed outside of stackforge using a weird VCS --
we'd basically force them to switch to stackforge and git before we'd
even consider their application. If we ended up rejecting them, they
might feel this was a lot of wasted effort. I don't object raising the
pre-incubation requirements, just want to make sure everyone will be
aware of the consequences :)

That said, most (all?) openstack-wanabee projects now go the stackforge
route, so I'm not sure that would create extra pain for anyone.
