Dear Bernd,
    Your suggestions about "BlueSky ASF Project" are very significative for
us, and thanks a lot for your guide. We shall start  doing something to make
up for the deficiency of "BlueSky ASF Project" according to your
suggestions. Detailed schemes list in email below.

    Best Regards

    Shan Jiang

It is making things much better understandable if you start reading
all the information there is about incubation on the incubator's

to Bill or Bernd : I have some questions about this report Bernd mentioned.
What is the content of the report? Is there any report form for the report?
Is there some referrences of other project in ASF Incubator for us? is online and
announces the releases of various subprojects this year. As these
releases don't seem to be done from the ASF, where can they be found?

to Bernd and Bill: BlueSky Dev. Team try to commit all source code files of
these releases to Apache SVN in ten days. It take more time to remove or
substitute the GPL code in the original programme of BlueSky.

It seems to me that the project could benefit from more than the two
mentors it currently has. Incubator best practice requires at least 3.
I propose you go to or contact candidates

to Bernd: BlueSky ASF Project has three mentors now: Bill Stoddard, J Aaron
Farr, Niclas Hedhman.

I also note that there is no active dicussion on the mailing lists. To
attract other developers to the project, which is vital to become a
proper and diverse ASF open source project, you need to be working in
the open as much as possible.

I suggest you move over all your internal discussion over to the dev
list and link your project from the main incubator website so people
can find it.

to Bernd & Bill: Dev. Team shall submit several significant or interesting
dicussions on the mailing lists, and  the work and status about these
dicussions  will be listed in main incubator website. One question to Bill:
which website is better to list the the work and status about these
dicussions, BlueSky official website (,
BlueSky incubator wiki ( or BlueSky
project status page (
Please Bill give us some advice.

What do you think?

Good luck,
