This does look like a good start.

Based on recently going through this (or trying to...) with OFBiz I  
found quite a bit of good information in the Policy guide and was  
able to divine more or less what needed to be done, but there is  
little indication of the order of doing things. That could probably  
be solved by having a simple check list or process list with  
everything to do.

Something like:

1. Make sure all STATUS page items are complete (including the  
completion of at least a "Test Snapshot" release approved by the  
Incubator PMC)
2. Do a podling-internal vote (with binding votes from Podling-PMC  
members) to approve graduation readiness
3. For podlings seeking TLP status: Create a Board Draft Resolution  
describing the seeking of TLP status, project scope and information,  
proposed PMC members and a PMC chair, etc. (perhaps a good list or a  
sample resolution here)
4. Do a incubator-level graduation vote (with binding votes from the  
Incubator PMC members)
5. ... not sure what happens after this... does an Incubator PMC  
member, or perhaps the Chair himself bring the resolution before the  

There is a list of post graduation steps in the Policy document, but  
not having "tested" that yet I don't really have any feedback so far.

BTW, the above list is probably incomplete and possibly incorrect. It  
only represents by rough understanding based on what we have done and  
the feedback we've received in the OFBiz effort.
