Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "AlternativeIncubatorAnalysis" page has been changed by BensonMargulies:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/AlternativeIncubatorAnalysis?action=diff&rev1=7&rev2=8

  
  = IP Clearance =
  
- The IPMC is the official home of IP clearance. It's a somewhat complex topic that the TLPs
don't deal with all of the time, and new projects do the most of it. Is ComDev to become the
IP Clearance department, too? As with evaluating proposals, the IPMC currently helps perform
this function and there is no need to shift the responsibility elsewhere.

- This has been listed separately because it is a problem area. No one enjoys watching a podling
struggle though seven release candidates as IPMC members randomly identify problems one at
a time. Anger at this process has fueled much recent discussion. It is not clear that demolishing
the incubator cures this. It is also a concern that the current problem will be replaced by
the opposite problem.

  The underlying problem with the current process is not an oversupply of control freaks or
petty despots, pacé Bill, but rather an undersupply of clear documentation. Pacé Leo, it's
not necessarily lengthy, detailed, picky documentation. If podlings and mentors knew where
to go to find a clear, concise, statement of the requirements, they would be well on the way
to avoiding gauntlets.
