= How Long Does Incubation Take? =

There is no "hard" answer to that, and no rules. We've had a project go through incubation
in 2 weeks, one do it in 6 months, another in 7 months. Others take a year or more. The incubator
has some entry criteria and some exit criteria (see the [http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html
policy docs]). Any project that satisfies the entry criteria can enter, any project that satisfies
the exit criteria can (will) exit.

What lies in between? If all goes well, we see some (difficult-to-measure) "progress" over
time towards a project meeting the exit criteria. While the time a project spends in the incubator
is not indefinite, as long as there is progress, there's no artificial deadline.

'''This info was distilled from a [http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/BrowseList?listName=general@incubator.apache.org&by=thread&from=792185
mailing list conversation] on the general mailing list for the incubator.'''
