Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by RobertBurrellDonkin:

The comment on the change is:
Developing some ideas for the enter the incubator document.

   * is just a landing page. probably not
a good idea to take this one on ATM. Need a guide for mentors and projects which is what this
was probably intended to be. 
   * [ Guide To Entry] is a landing page with
basic outline. lot of work required. 
+   * Starting Point Matrix - Open or Close Community; Open, Closed Or Even No Source but
Must Bring An Active Community! Experience of the incubator and requirement are likely to
differ for different people on the matrix. 
+    * Community, no code: the process is the longest and the most difficult. These projects
are rare and probably require the active backing of one or more well known figure with proven
ability in community building.
+    * Open Source, Open Development in an existing open community: the process should potentially
be quick. the major effort should be in completing the legal side (the provinance of the code
needs to be completely tracked - this may mean that some areas of the code base may need to
be replaced with fresh implementations; learning how to create releases that comply with apache
policy; replacing or modularizing any dependencies that do not comply with apache policy).
it's also useful for both sides to get to know each other better during this period.
   * [ Guide To Mailing Lists] needs tidying
up. the index page has a missing link to this page. the website content should be replaced
with a link to the website guide. 
    * more content on mailing list best practices would be good but perhaps should be in the
foundation docs
