  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 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.
  
- Lastly, the MRQL project proposal was championed by an individual who is a PMC chair, but
is not a foundation member or IPMC member.  Discovery of this fact, combined with the perception
that the vote was rushed, lead some in the IPMC to immediately invalidate the project proposal
and take actions to cancel creation of its resources.  Further discussions have prompted other
IPMC members to step forward as proposed champions and mentors in an effort to get the proposal
and project creation back on track.

  Shepherd notes:
  
+ I am a concerned about the recent drop in activity for the podling.  There was a flurry
of mail around the 0.6.0-incubating release and very little of substance since then, with
absolutely nothing in the month of February.  I wouldn't be so concerned if the vote was successful;
but, since it was a cancelled vote, I would have assumed the community would try to fix the
issues and get it out as soon as possible.  These observations are, of course, made from a
quick review, so I could be missing an important detail.
