  !Identify the project to be incubated
  *Make sure that the requested project name does not already exist
       and check to be sure that the name is not
       already trademarked for an existing software product.
  *If request from an existing Apache project to adopt an external
       package, then ask the Apache project 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 assess
       the fit with the ASF, and create the lists and modules under the
       incubator address/module names if accepted.
  !Interim responsibility
  *Who has been identified as the shepherd for the incubation?
  *Are they tracking progress in the file
  *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.
  *Have the files been updated to reflect the new ASF copyright?
  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
  *Have they submitted a contributors agreement?
  *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?
