  Incubator PMC report for Mar 2013
  
- This month saw a significant discussion around a proposal to modify the Incubator's policy
to eliminate the option for podlings to graduate as sub-projects of existing PMCs.  While
this discussion still has many unresolved issues, there is significant support for eliminating
it as an allowed goal for a proposed podling.  Many participants agreed that retaining it
as a viable exit path via exception was a logical compromise to eliminating it all together;
specifically, when achieving TLP is not a viable option and there is a PMC willing to accept
the code/community.  
+ This month saw a significant discussion around a proposal to modify the Incubator's policy
to eliminate the option for podlings to graduate as sub-projects of existing PMCs. While this
discussion still has unresolved issues, including moving short-form IP Clearance to legal,
there is significant support for eliminating the option for a proposed podling to explicitly
target a sub-project graduation path.  Many participants agreed that retaining it as a viable
exit path by exception was a logical compromise to eliminating it all together; specifically,
when after incubation, it is apparent that achieving TLP is not a viable option and there
is a PMC willing to accept the code/community.  The effect of this discussion can already
be seen in the modification of the Curator proposal to keep TLP as a potential graduation
target.
+ 
+ Additionally, the Incubator saw a substantial influx of new, accpeted projects with more
proposals currently under discussion.  In prior reports, the issue of mentor time & attention
was raised and will need to be watched closely with the addition of so many new projects in
a short timeframe.  The only point of immediate concern in this space is the failed experiment
for Shepherd's to self-organize. As a PMC, the Incubator needs to determine how we will handle
the assignment and execution of the up-till-now successful shepherd role for any given report
without the direct intervention of a single individual, such as the PMC chair.
