Subject [survey] Exiting the Incubator
Date Sat, 15 Jan 2005 04:32:35 GMT

The Directory project is a pretty large undertaking.  There's just a lot 
of technology to be groked.  We've done well and have a functioning 
server amongst other things.  We have spent about 15 months in the 
incubator.  This may shock a few people but again its a massive 
undertaking building naming and a directory server.  I think we've got 
the critical mass now in terms of community which will soon after a 
release grow even larger.  The code is healthy and free of IP issues as 
well as any potential TM infringments.  The state of this project IMHO 
is, [ready to exit].

Informally I'd like to get a feel for those who think we're getting 
close to that time. If we decide now it will probably take us a little 
while to start putting the house in order to request graduation.  Also 
there are a few things that our PPMC must do.  I think this process 
could take sometime: perhaps 3-4 weeks. 

Here's my little survey:

Question #1:

What is your opinion with regard to an incubator exit?

[ ] stay incubating indefinately
[ ] I don't care
[ ] let's wait at least _____ months before considering an exit
[ ] the time is about right. Let's start getting ready to exit since the 
process will take time
[ ] this project should have exited the incubator a long time ago

Question #2:

If you selected the 3rd answer "... Let's start getting ready to exit 
..." are you willing to lend a hand to help make this happen:

[ ] yeah I can help out
[ ] no can't help
