-Incubator Disclaimer
-Apache Pig is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software
-Foundation (ASF). 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.
