-communities who are willing to provide help. This is not always the case with incubator podlings.
-        		</p>
-<p>
-To gain the maximum benefit from any immature project (as many podlings are),

-   <a name="developer">As A Developer</a>
-</h3>
-<div class="section-content">
-<p>
-At Apache, a <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#developers">developer</a>
-(aka contributor) is anyone who actively helps to develop our software. This includes more than just coders
-and documenters. For example, anyone who joins in discussions on the mailing lists or answers questions 
-from users is also a developer.
-                </p>
-<p>
-Apache is a <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#decision-making">
-<em>DO</em>-ocracy</a>. The first step along the road leading to 
-<a href="#committer">committership</a> is to become a developer. For more information start with
-<a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html">How Apache Works</a>
-and the <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/">developer documentation</a>.
-				</p>
-</div>
-<h3>
-   <a name="committer">As A Committer</a>
-</h3>
-<div class="section-content">
-<p>
-A <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Committers">committer</a> 
-is anyone with write access to the source repository. Election to committership in the Incubator
-works a little differently from the process that is usual elsewhere at Apache.
-            	</p>
-<p>
-Once a podling has been bootstrapped, <a href="#developer">developers</a> are nominated
-and election to committer happens in the <a href="ppmc.html#Voting+in+a+new+committer">usual way</a>.
-                </p>
-<p>
-When a proposal is just a <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Candidate">candidate</a>, 
-there are two possible approaches (for those interested in committership).
-                </p>
-<p>
-The proposal typically 
-<a href="proposal.html#template-initial-committers">contains</a> a list of initial committers.
-When a podling is bootstrapped, this list is used by the mentors to set up initial accounts.
-So, one way to become a committer for a podling is to be listed on the proposal as an initial
-committer.
-            	</p>
-<p>
-The right way to express interest is by a post to the list with a brief introduction. 
-Piling onto a proposal (by adding your own name as an initial committer) is impolite.
-Read 
-<a href="http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-general/200607.mbox/%3cC73C6D24-3216-4EB4-8846-1218B38CC594@gbiv.com%3e">this thread</a>.
-            	</p>
-<p>
-A podling needs to learn how to recruit new committers from its developers. So,
-another way is to show up on the list and start helping with the development.
-This path will help the podling more than adding your name to the list of initial committers.
-            	</p>
-</div>
-<h3>
-   <a name="mentors">As A Mentor</a>
-</h3>
-<div class="section-content">
-<p>
-Anyone with knowledge of open source or Apache can participate as a informal mentor
-for a podling. Development is open and anyone with an interest is encouraged to 
-subscribe. 
-            	</p>
-<p>
-Eligibility to act as a formal 
-<a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor">Mentor</a> is 
-<a href="/incubation/Incubation_Policy#Mentor">limited</a>. The best way for an eligible 
-individual to become a Mentor is to post a note introducing him- or herself 
-and volunteering their services to <code>general.AT.incubator.apache.org</code> 
-during the development of the <a href="proposal.html">proposal</a>.

+</h3>
+<div class="section-content">
+<p>
+At Apache, a <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#developers">developer</a>
+(aka contributor) is anyone who actively helps to develop our software. This includes more than just coders
+and documenters. For example, anyone who joins in discussions on the mailing lists or answers questions 
+from users is also a developer.
+                </p>
+<p>
+Apache is a <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#decision-making">
+<em>DO</em>-ocracy</a>. The first step along the road leading to 
+<a href="#committer">committership</a> is to become a developer. For more information start with
+<a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html">How Apache Works</a>
+and the <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/">developer documentation</a>.
+				</p>
+</div>
+<h3>
+   <a name="committer">As A Committer</a>
+</h3>
+<div class="section-content">
+<p>
+A <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Committers">committer</a> 
+is anyone with write access to the source repository. Election to committership in the Incubator
+works a little differently from the process that is usual elsewhere at Apache.
+            	</p>
+<p>
+Once a podling has been bootstrapped, <a href="#developer">developers</a> are nominated
+and election to committer happens in the <a href="ppmc.html#Voting+in+a+new+committer">usual way</a>.
+                </p>
+<p>
+When a proposal is just a <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Candidate">candidate</a>, 
+there are two possible approaches (for those interested in committership).
+                </p>
+<p>
+The proposal typically 
+<a href="proposal.html#template-initial-committers">contains</a> a list of initial committers.
+When a podling is bootstrapped, this list is used by the mentors to set up initial accounts.
+So, one way to become a committer for a podling is to be listed on the proposal as an initial
+committer.
+            	</p>
+<p>
+The right way to express interest is by a post to the list with a brief introduction. 
+Piling onto a proposal (by adding your own name as an initial committer) is impolite.
+Read 
+<a href="http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-general/200607.mbox/%3cC73C6D24-3216-4EB4-8846-1218B38CC594@gbiv.com%3e">this thread</a>.
+            	</p>
+<p>
+A podling needs to learn how to recruit new committers from its developers. So,
+another way is to show up on the list and start helping with the development.
+This path will help the podling more than adding your name to the list of initial committers.
+            	</p>
+</div>
+<h3>
+   <a name="mentors">As A Mentor</a>
+</h3>
+<div class="section-content">
+<p>
+Anyone with knowledge of open source or Apache can participate as a informal mentor
+for a podling. Development is open and anyone with an interest is encouraged to 
+subscribe. 
+            	</p>
+<p>
+Eligibility to act as a formal 
+<a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor">Mentor</a> is 
+<a href="/incubation/Incubation_Policy#Mentor">limited</a>. The best way for an eligible

-        Initially, it is composed of the Podling's mentors and initial

+<p>The Podling Project Management Committee (PPMC) helps a
+        Podling learn how to govern itself.  It works like a PMC but
+        reports to the Incubator PMC instead of to the ASF Board.
+        Initially, it is composed of the Podling's mentors and initial
+        committers.  The PPMC is directly responsible for the oversight
+        of the podling and it also decides who to add as a PPMC member.</p>
+<p>For general information about PMCs, see the <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/pmc.html">PMC FAQ</a>.</p>

+<div class="section-content">
+<p>A private mail list, named <em>project</em>-private, lets 
+        the PPMC discuss confidential topics.
+        <em>Most communication should be on the Podling's dev list!</em>
+        The private list is used only for confidential discussions that
+        should not be made public, such as the suitability of a
+        particular individual to become a committer or a member of the
+        PPMC. See the ASF <em>How it Works</em> section titled <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#         management">Balancing confidentiality and public discussion</a>.
+        </p>
+<p><b><em>Don't mix private and public lists in posts!</em></b></p>
+<ul>
+           <li>Don't post to both the dev and private lists.
+               Each member of the PPMC should be on the dev list, so posting
+               to dev is sufficient.</li>
+           <li>Likewise, don't post to both the Incubator general and
+               Incubator private lists. Each member of the Incubator PMC is on
+               the Incubator general list, so posting to general is
+               sufficient.</li>
+         </ul>
+<p>
+    Note that the lists used to be named <em>project</em>-ppmc or
+    pmc@<em>tlp</em>, so you may see those names referenced in other ASF 
+    documentation or in the mail list archives. It was 
+    <a href="/official/mailing-lists.html#july-2005">resolved</a>
+    that these lists should be named <em>private</em> 
+    to make it clear that they should be used for confidential discussion,

+<p>On a regular basis, reports from each incubating project are
+      aggregated and sent to the ASF Board. Watch the Incubator general
+      mail list for when these become due.</p>
+<p>The Incubator reports to the ASF Board monthly and includes
+      status for a subset of the incubating projects. Currently new
+      Podlings report to the Incubator monthly for the first three
+      months, then quarterly thereafter. The <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/ReportingSchedule">
+      reporting schedule</a> is on the <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/incubator">Incubator Wiki</a>, which
+      is also used for Podlings to provide status.</p>
+<p>The PPMC does not have to fill out the report itself; the PPMC
+      is just responsible for making sure that it gets filled out. In
+      fact, it is better to discuss the report on the dev list and ask
+      Podling developers to contribute to it. If Mentors disagree with
+      the posted report, they should say so; otherwise, the Incubator
+      PMC will assume that it speaks for the community.</p>
+<p>Please add the following items:</p>
+<ul>
+        <li> Project name and one-line summary.</li>
+        <li> Date of entry to the Incubator.</li>

+        <li>Are there any legal, infrastructure, cross-project or
+            personal issues that need to be addressed?  (Are
+            there any stumbling blocks that impede the podling?)</li>
+        <li>Check that the project's Incubation

+            (Also provide the URL.)</li>
