Subject [half-baked-idea] Incubator Commons
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 18:48:29 GMT
Here's an idea from the Commons list that seemed attractive there and
I'd like to ask what people think here.

Commons has the Commons Sandbox, which while it's often been viewed as
Incubator-like is actually much more like Labs. New code is written or
pieced together from many sources and then released. The only
component I can think of (CSV) that came in wholly from outside hasn't
done well because a somewhat finished product doesn't do well in a
Labs situation. Rule 1: You can't release; is a bit of a pain for
something that is ready to use.

There's been interest in bringing things in, both inside Commons and
from people wanting to bring things to Commons, but there really isn't
a good process. Equally, there's not really a process in the Incubator
which fits as each component is not enough to stand on its own as a
potential future project. The barrier to promotion from Sandbox to
Proper is:

* 3 +1 votes indicating that:
** The component is ready for its first release.
** At least three people are developing/maintaining it.
** There's active user interest.

Any thoughts on an Incubator Commons subproject where we can bring in
new Commons components and vet them there without messing up the
Sandbox-Labs approach?
