+<li>The Incubator PMC.  In this case, the Incubator PMC agrees that the project in question will make a good addition to the ASF, but there is no clear "owner" of the candidate should it successfully complete incubation.  An incubation exit requirement for such candidates will be the identification (and successfuly lobbying) of an "owner" entity - either the board (and the candidate will be a TLP) or another project. </li>

The Sponsor, by taking on a candidate, is indicating that they believe the candidate will make a worthy addition to the ASF, and takes responsibility for assisting the podling through the Incubation process.  The Sponsor is therefore expected to be actively involved in the incubation process and assist where necessary, giving the podling the best possible chance of success.  In addition, an entity that is a Top Level Project should be involved in the Candidate's incubation in order to educate the Candidate about practices that are specific to that TLP and about other relevant projects within the TLP. </p>

The Mentor is the individual accountable to the Incubator PMC for ensuring the incubation process is correctly followed.  In cases where the Mentor is not fulfilling their responsibilities, the Sponsor (in particular its Chair) will be expected to remedy the situation. </p>

On acceptance of a candidate project, the assigned Mentor shall be given access to the Podling's cvs repository for the duration of the incubation process.  This is to allow the Mentor to perform their incubation duties, and is for administrative purposes only.  To be given full committer privileges, such as the right to add new code to the repository, the Mentor must earn them as would any other potential new committer.  In some cases, the Mentor may be part of the initial set of declared committers, but this is not a requirement of the Incubation process. </p>

+<li>keep your Mentor informed - he/she is reporting to the PMC and generally speaking "no news is bad news".  Of course, conducting business on the project's mailing lists is one important way to do this.   </li>
+<li>make sure your Champion is continuously in-the-loop and has the latest and greatest information about your project </li>
+<li>actively seek and recruit committers to your project - preferably linking you with existing Apache communities </li>
+<li>make sure your decision making process is visible and accountable </li>
+</ul>
+                                                <p>These activities are not unique to projects in the Incubator.  For example, existing Apache Projects have regular reports made by their PMC Chair to the ASF Board. </p>
+                                                <p>During the incubation, the committers will be expected to show how, as a group, they are upholding the ideals of the Apache community.  In particular, as the Podling evolves it is anticipated that the Podling will establish procedures for the introduction of new committers through a process consistent with established Apache practices. If you are aiming for TLP status you may also want to start on drafting the policy and procedures you aim to put in place once accepted. </p>

+on an individual basis.  Instead, we have setup mailing lists which 
+often contain hundreds of  individuals who will help answer detailed 
+requests for help. The benefit of  using mailing lists over private 
+communication is that it is a shared  resource where others can also 
+learn from common mistakes and as a  community we all grow together.

+<subsection name="Making the Board Report">
+
+<p>The Chair must remember to send the board a status report of the Incubator Project. </p>
+<p>The dates of the meetings and the months in which to send in a report can be found in the  <span class="codefrag">committers</span> CVS module under  <span class="codefrag">board/</span> . </p>
+<p>It's  <em>important</em> that the report is sent  <em>at least</em> two days before the scheduled meeting. </p>
+<p>The Chair should also ensure that the Incubating projects have prior notice of this so that they can send in their Incubation Report. It's advisable to ask them at least 3 weeks prior the meeting, so that the Incubator Project can review and discuss them. </p>
+<p>Here is a board report boilerplate: </p>
+<pre>
+Status report for the Apache Incubator Project
+
+* Noteable happening's in the Incubator
+
+* what code releases have been made? [since the last report]
+
+* any new projects in process of being accepted?
+
+* any legal issues to bring to the board?
+
+* any cross-project issues that need to be addressed?
+
+* any problems with committers, members, etc?
+
+* plans and expectations for the next period?
+
+</pre>
+
+</subsection>
+<subsection name="Asking for Incubation Reports">
+
+<p>At least when there is a board report due, or when it seemes needed, the Chair can ask a project for an Incubation Report. This helps in assessing the status of the project and eventually vote for the exit from incubation. </p>

+<section name="FAQ">
+
+<strong>
+Does the X Project really have to go in the Incubator to get to Apache?
+</strong>
+
+        <p>
+          Yes.
+        </p>
+        <p>Code that has existed outside the asf can <strong>only</strong> enter 
+           the ASF through the Incubator.  There is no other option.  
+        </p>
+        <p>The Incubator, among other thingsm is where the due-diligence of 
+           making sure the licence is correct, the copyright is assigned, 
+           and all of the initial developers submit their clas.
+        </p>
+
+<strong>
+I'm the mentor of this project, and I think that I'm able to do it by myself.
+        The Incubator doesn't add anything, can it be skipped?
+</strong>
+
+        <p>No.</p> 
+        
+        <p>Do it right, do it well, and add something in the process. </p> 
+
+        <p> Incubation is not about handing it over to some other group and 
+            seeing what happens. The Incubator is simply the name of the place 
+            that governs your actions when you process a new project into Apache.  
+            It moves at the same rate you do, and achieves whatever you achieve 
+            -- the only difference is that we have a permanent record in <strong>one</strong>
+            place that we can go back to if there are later IP problems, and there 
+            is a gate that must be passed through before the project is given 
+            the right to release software on behalf of the ASF.  
+            That gate will not be ignored or bypassed just because one group or 
+            another feels they have earned the right to bypass it; allowing that 
+            kind of exception destroys the potential to build a tradition of effective 
+            oversight, which is the reason we created incubator.
+        </p>
+
+<strong>
+Project XXX makes no mention of the Incubator for accepting new projects, but the 
+Incubator site says that all projects entering Apache must pass the Incubator.
+What do we need to do, to move to the Apache XXX project?
+</strong>
+
+        <p>The incubation process, WRT responsibilities, is roughly as follows:</p>
+          <ol>
+            <li>Any Apache PMC (project management commitee) or the Apache board 
+                approves the entrance of a project at Apache. They are the Sponsor.</li>
+                
+            <li>The Incubator is from that moment on responsible for the project, which 
+                will remain so till the Incubator votes for it to be "graduated" to the 
+                PMC that asked for it. If the PMC was the Incubator itself or the board, 
+                the project will have its own PMC.</li>
+
+            <li>Incubation complete.</li>
+          </ol>  
+         <p>So, since you would like to have a place under the XXX Project, ask there to 
+          vote for acceptance. After that vote, you will automatically be under the Incubator, 
+          and incubation will take place.
+        </p>
+
+
+<strong>
+Someone has proposed that their code/project be donated to project X
+within the ASF for continued development.  What do we need to do to 
+accept the code?
+</strong>
+
+		<p>
+		  The Incubator will only accept code for incubation if a PMC (project
+		  management committee) or the Apache board has voted to accept it.
+		  So when a proposal for the donation of code occurs, the project in
+		  question should discuss the proposal internally, leading to a
+		  decision by that project's PMC on whether or not to accept the code
+		  (and potentially the project surrounding it) into the fold.
+		</p>
+		<p>
+		  If the PMC agrees, then the incubator can be approached, and the
+		  code accepted for incubation.
+      The grant needs to be recorded by following the procedure
+      outlined at the
+      <link href="http://www.apache.org/licenses/">Software Grants</link>
+      section of the ASF Licenses page.
+		</p>
+
+
+<strong>
+How can I update the site?
+</strong>
+
+      <p>Refer to <a href="/how_to_participate.html">How to Participate</a>
+       page. If you are not a committer on the Incubator project, then you can
+       still send patches for the source documents.</p>
+
+
+<strong>
+How do I update the incubation status of a project?
+</strong>
+
+       <p>Look in the incubator SVN module, under site-author/projects/projectname.html
+         (Note: Some projects still use old *.cwiki as the input format - not recommended.)
+       </p>
+       <p>
+         See the <link href="site:guides/website">instructions</link>
+         for updating the website.
+       </p>
+
+<strong>
+Why don't we use an issue tracking system to track incubation process?
+</strong>
+
+       <p>AFAIK, issue trackers do not authenticate that the person entering 
+          the status information has the authority to do so, which is what we
+          get with the Subversion source control process.</p>
+       <p>Note that how the actual day to day tracking is done is not relevant, 
+          and any means, even an issue tracker can be used.</p>
+       <p>Nevertheless, SVN is our only authorative and formal tracking system
+          for incubation status.</p>
+
+
+<strong>
+How do I update the site of an incubating project?
+</strong>
+
+       <p>First of all, read our <link href="site:incubation/policy">Incubation Policy</link>.</p>
+       <p>Refer to <link href="howtoparticipate.html#project-website">How to Participate</link> page.</p>
