org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder, AFAIK, only works with CVS
repositories, so you may have to write you own method of fetching
sources from SVN.

As long as you produce an update site with site*.xml file(s) and jars,
you can participate. (You also need a site digest and packed jars.)
See http://wiki.eclipse.org/Ganymede

The ganymatic build just pulls from your update site on
download.eclipse.org in order to produce the combined site. See
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Ganymede/Build

Past precendet says that yes, incubating projects/components can
participate provided that they follow all the Must Do rules. See
