  +The Incubation Process
  +======================
  +
  +Identify the project to be incubated:
  +
  +  -- Make sure that the requested project name does not already exist
  +     and check www.nameprotect.com to be sure that the name is not
  +     already trademarked for an existing software product.
  +
  +  -- If request from an existing Apache project for later inclusion,
  +     then ask them for the cvs module and mail address names.
  +
  +  -- If request from outside Apache to enter an existing Apache project,
  +     then post a message to that project for them to decide on acceptance.
  +
  +  -- If request from anywhere to become a stand-alone PMC, then create
  +     the lists and modules under the incubator address/module names.
  +     
  +Interim responsibility:
  +
  +  -- Who has been identified as the shepherd for the incubation?
  +
  +  -- Are they tracking progress in the file
  +
  +      incubator/projects/{project_name}/STATUS
  +
  +Copyright:
  +
  +  -- Have the papers that transfer rights to the ASF been received?
  +     It is only necessary to transfer rights for the package, the
  +     core code, and any new code produced by the project.
  +
  +Verify distribution rights:
  +
  +  -- For all code included with the distribution that is not under the
  +     Apache license, do we have the right to combine with Apache-licensed
  +     code and redistribute?
  +
  +  -- Is all source code distributed by the project covered by one or more
  +     of the following approved licenses:  Apache, BSD, Artistic, MIT/X,
  +     MIT/W3C, MPL 1.1, or something with essentially the same terms.
  +
  +Establish a list of active committers:
  +
  +  -- Are all active committers in the STATUS file?
  +
  +  -- Do they have accounts on cvs.apache.org?
  +
  +  -- Have they submitted a contributors agreement?
  +
  +Infrastructure:
  +
  +  -- CVS modules created and committers added to avail file?
  +
  +  -- Mailing lists set up and archived
  +
  +  -- Problem tracking system (Bugzilla)
  +
  +  -- Has the project migrated to our infrastructure?
  +
  +Collaborative Development:
  +
  +  -- Have all of the active long-term volunteers been identified
  +     and acknowledged as committers on the project?
  +
  +  -- Are there three or more independent committers?
  +
  +     [The legal definition of independent is long and boring, but basically
  +      it means that there is no binding relationship between the individuals,
  +      such as a shared employer, that is capable of overriding their free
  +      will as individuals, directly or indirectly.]
  +
  +  -- Are project decisions being made in public by the committers?
  +
  +  -- Are the decision-making guidelines published and agreed to by
  +     all of the committers?
  +
  +Organizational acceptance of responsibility for the project:
  +
  +  -- If graduating to an existing PMC, has the PMC voted to accept it?
  +
  +  -- If graduating to a new PMC, has the board voted to accept it?
  +
  +Incubator sign-off:
  +
  +  -- Has the Incubator decided that the project has accomplished all
  +     of the above tasks? 
  +
