Subject [jira] Commented: (INCUBATOR-10) Incubation_Policy.html should specify to use the Incubator PMC
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2006 09:10:20 GMT

David N. Welton commented on INCUBATOR-10:

I would put TLP's as the most likely sponsor *if a project would fit*, then the incubator
PMC, then the board, as a last resort.

I think I would link the 'sponsor' section, but also explain the actions to be taken at that
point, for anyone doing things step by step.

Otherwise, it looks pretty good to me.

> "Approval by a Sponsor will generally occur only after a vote within the Entity, and
will require that the Entity be convinced that the Candidate is appropriate for Incubation.
A Sponsor may be one of:
>     * the Board of the Apache Software Foundation;
>     * a Top Level Project (TLP) within the Apache Software Foundation (where the TLP
considers the Candidate to be a suitable sub-project); or
>     * the Incubator PMC."
> Although in practice it appears that the Incubator PMC is the preferred sponsor for projects
that would end up a TLP.  The site could say something like this:
> Where a top level project is not an appropriate sponsor, the Incubator PMC is the preferred
sponsor.  Requests should be sent to the general (AT) mailing list.
