Dear Wiki user,

The following page has been changed by NiclasHedhman:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/HowLongDoesIncubationTake

The comment on the change is:
Bring in the Retired notion to the text.

  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.
+ What lies in between? If all goes well, we see some (difficult-to-measure) "progress" over
time towards a project meeting the exit criteria. If progress halts or unresolvable community
problem arises, the project can also be retired from incubation. That does not exclude that
the project move elsewhere and potentially enter Apache incubation again later. While the
time a project spends in the incubator is not indefinite, as long as there is progress, there's
no artificial deadline.
