+			<p>
+				A retired project is a project which has been closed down by the PPMC or by the IPMC
for various reasons.
+				It is not longer developed at the Apache Incubator and does not have any other duties.
+			</p>
+			<p>
+				The source code of a retired project is available in SVN, when the copyright requirements
are fullfilled. 
+				This is indicated through the incubator status page.
+			</p>
+			<p>
+				Before following the retirement steps, the remaining developers of the project should
be informed and vote
+				should happen on the projects dev list. After the vote, the IPMC must vote on the general
list to retire the
+				project. 
+			</p>
+			<p>
+				In some cases the developers of a project might be opposed to retirement, while the IPMC
is in favour because
+				its members cannot see a succesfull graduation now or in future. In this case the IPMC
decides about the retirement.
