Subject [VOTE] Changes to Incubator process(es)
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2006 14:28:51 GMT

Let's VOTE for the following changes to incubator processes (majority
rules, no vetos). Anyone can vote, but only the PMC member vote's are
binding. If you want to bring up an issue, PLEASE DON'T hijack this
thread, but start a new one. As usual use +1/+0/-0/-1 notation.

[ ] - Any proposal should hit general@incubator first, No PR before that.

[ ] - Any PR should be vetted by PRC, No Excuses.

[ ] - Any new proposal should have 3 ASF Members / Officers as mentors
(without regard to affiliation)

[ ] - Any new proposal should list at least one person as a
infrastucture volunteer.

[ ] - A sponsoring PMC should hold their VOTE to sponsor a proposal or
IP Clearance 72 hours *AFTER* it is posted on general@incubator

[ ] - Any existing committer from any Apache project should be able to
volunteer to work on the proposed project within the 72 hours. Any
later, it would be through regular karma process. (To promote
inclusion/diversification from day one)

[ ] - IP Clearance needs to be preceded by a proposal posted to
general@incubator as well

[ ] - IP Clearance has to be OK'ed by Incubator PMC VOTE (before code
gets checked in to a sponsoring project's SVN)

[ ] - Petition the Board to require Incubator PMC VOTE to begin
incubation process even for projects that other PMC's want to sponsor.

[ ] - Within 72 hours of a new project hitting the general@incubator
mailing list, that any incubator PMC member can call for an advisory
vote and comment period if they see issues with what's been presented
by the sponsoring PMC.

PS: I added the latest suggestion from Bill as the last item.
