Subject [jira] [Commented] (INCUBATOR-10) Incubation_Policy.html should specify to use the Incubator PMC
Date Mon, 05 Apr 2021 22:57:00 GMT


Justin Mclean commented on INCUBATOR-10:

There's probably a reason for this - i.e. What happened to the Jakarta project. Not that precludes
other TLP being sponsors but we don't want umbrella projects.

> "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.
