Apache Incubator Whiteboard
The Apache Incubator Project (http://incubator.apache.org/) is dedicated to facilitating the smooth entry of valid new and donated code bases and community projects into the Apache Software Foundation.
This wiki is the whiteboard we use to collaborate on draft documents and receive extra suggestions and docs from anyone interested in helping. Of course the main process documentation is at http://incubator.apache.org
Incubator PMC must report to the ASF Board of directors every month. The way this works is that incubating projects compile their own report of project status, and send that report to the Incubator PMC for aggregation and feedback. The ReportingSchedule page lists which projects must report when. Your mentors will help in drafting the report.
The report is a collaborative effort of the committee, with the Chair (or a designated Report Manager) setting up and sweeping up.
After a podling report is submitted, the Incubator PMC and the assigned IncubatorShepherds will review it and provide feedback where needed. Once all podling reports are reviewed, the IPMC chair will submit the combined report with a short summary to the ASF board.
