+Each proposal has a <a href='incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities#Sponsor'>Sponsor</a>.
+The identity of the Sponsor indicates the natural destination: for proposals sponsored by
the
+board or by the incubator PMC (IPMC), this is a top level project; for others, this is as
a subproject
+of the sponsoring project but the destination is fixed on graduation, not entry. Projects
grow
+and evolve during the graduation process. As gradation approaches, this original preference
+should be reviewed based on where the project is now.
+                   </p>
+                   <p>
+Graduation as a subproject is only possible if the subproject still falls with the scope
of the project
+and requires the consent of the project PMC. Graduation as a project requires the formation
+of the new project by the board.
+                   </p>
+                   <p>
+The IPMC will also express a democractic opinion. For those seeking to graduate to a subproject
+this vote is to approve the transfer. For those seeking to graduation as a top level project,
this
+will be a recommendation to the board. Expect IPMCers to ask questions about the project

+including about the choice of destination. This is part of the normal process.
