The Incubator is basically holding Droids open out of deference to

Droids has not been active for a long time, and would require
considerable work building a community before it could graduate as a
TLP.  Some small podlings have graduated in the past (no fewer than 5
PMC members) and it has worked out OK.  Having two people as
experienced as Richard and Thorsten on Board in a group of 5 would
make it a decent bet, were the podling active. But almost nothing has
been going on with Droids for years.

The matter will probably resolve once Richard tires of making
quarterly reports and challenging calls to retire the podling whenever
a report is late.
