  !!!Incubator Chair Guides
  Some things can only be done by the Incubator Chair.
  !!Adding a new PMC member
  1. Be sure that the person you're adding has been voted by the PMC
     or is one of the designated Mentors for a project
  2. Send this mail:
  CC: address(es) of the new pmc member(s)
  Subject: [PLEASE ACK] New Incubator PMC member(s): Member1, Member2, ...
  The Incubator PMC is adding (a) new member(s):
   Member1 <> (ProjectX Mentor)
   Member2 <> (voted...)
  Please ACK.
  Explanation of the process
  A chair can add a new PMC member, but it must notify the board first.
  72 hours after a board member has ACKed this request, and no other from
  the board objects, the person is officially part of the PMC. 
  For the new member(s)
  If he is a Mentor, coming in with a project, you may want to add this 
  to the mail:
  Note about adding Mentors
  I note that he has not been voted in with a 
  "[VOTE] Name Surmane as PMC member" but has nevertheless 
  been accepted as being the Mentor of a project, that 
  *has* been accepted. 
  3. Add the person to the incubator CVS avail
  3. Wait 72 hours after the ACK of a board member
  4. After 72 hours without problems, add the person to:
    * apachecvs/committers/board/committee-info.txt
  5. Mail the new member this welcome message.

  !!!Incubator PMC Guides
  Things that the Incubator Project members do.
  !!Starting a new Project
  After a project has been accepted by Apache by a positive vote of a PMC,
  it can start incubation. Here are the initial steps.
  1. Give the initial committers that are already Apache committers commit privileges 
  to the "incubator" and "incubator-site" CVS modules, so that they can start helping
  with the project ASAP.
  This can be done by the Incubator Chair (preferred as it's usually the fastest way), 
  by or anyone else that has the privs to do it.
  We are talking about adding people that are already in Apache and should
  not have any problem in gaining access to these public repositories.
  Example with project Axion:
  In the Apache CVSROOT avail file, search for the following line:
        #Incubating projects (should not be here if the project has graduated)
      add the projectname at the end of the next line
          #@see ws-juddi,ws-jaxme,ws-wsrp4j,xml-xmlbeans,cocoon-lenya,(ruper),(axion)
      add a line like this
  2. Add the status page template for the project and publish the site. 
  The indications can be found in the "incubator" CVS module:
  3. Make sure the [Chair|site:guides/chair]  adds the Mentor(s) to the PMC.
  4. Send a mail to telling that the above things have
  been done and invite the project members to start working with the status
  page items.
