In this case, it is

-          <li>A Top Level Project within the ASF. In this case, the project in

-          <li>The Incubator PMC. In this case, the Incubator PMC agrees that the
-project in question will make a good addition to the ASF, but there
-is no clear "owner" of the candidate should it successfully complete
-incubation. An incubation exit requirement for such candidates will
-be the identification (and successfuly lobbying) of an "owner" entity
-- either the <a href='#board'>Board</a> (and the candidate will be a TLP) or
another

-        <p>Note that a Sponsor is more than just a final resting place for a
-candidate that successfully completes incubation. The Sponsor, by
-taking on a candidate, is indicating that they believe the candidate
-will make a worthy addition to the ASF, and takes responsibility for
-assisting the podling through the Incubation process. The Sponsor is
-therefore expected to be actively involved in the incubation process
-and assist where necessary, giving the podling the best possible
-chance of success. In addition, an entity that is a Top Level Project
-should be involved in the Candidate's incubation in order to educate
-the Candidate about practices that are specific to that TLP and about
-other relevant projects within the TLP.
-</p>
-        <p>However, while the Sponsor is expected to be actively involved, it is
-formally representated by the Mentors. The Mentors are the individuals
-accountable to the Incubator PMC for ensuring the incubation process
-is correctly followed. In cases where the Mentors are not fulfilling
-their responsibilities, the Sponsor (in particular its Chair) will be
-expected to remedy the situation.
