Incubation at Apache

Apache Kato is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Incubator PMC.

Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.

While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

  1. I've added a Navigation page, now we have two pages.
    I also replaced the default logo with a custom one, it's there just so we know we can change it.
