+Apache Flagon is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
+sponsored by the Apache Incubator project. Incubation is required of all newly accepted
+projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and

+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.
