Dear Wiki user,

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

The "November2013" page has been changed by MarvinHumphrey:

Fill in report head except for podling summaries and releases.

  The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and codebases
  wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.
- < narrative >
+ There are 36 podlings currently under incubation.

  * Releases
@@ -63, +68 @@

  * IP Clearance
+   * Rcouch, an alternative distribution of Apache CouchDB based
+     the 1.3 release, has been accepted by the CouchDB PMC.
+   * Juniper Networks, Inc has donated a plugin for Apache CloudStack to
+     work with their Contrail networking software.
+   * Citrix has donated a plugin for Apache CloudStack to support RDP
+     connectivity for virtual machines running within Hyper-V hypervisors.
- * Legal / Trademarks
- * Infrastructure
  * Miscellaneous
+   * Several discussion threads on project bylaws, initiated by Flex community
+     pursuing refinement of their own, have made it clear just how difficult it
+     is to draft good bylaws.  A number of people expressed a desire for a set
+     of well-crafted, official project bylaws which all projects would
+     "inherit".  Since that's hard, though, for the time being we're muddling
+     through with patches to the existing ramshackle documentation.
+   * The Incubator's perpetual difficulties getting podling releases approved
+     has spawned another lively discussion.  We seem to have reached agreement
+     that we can mitigate the problem by entrusting meritorious podling
+     contributors with a binding vote on incubating releases; debate continues
+     about what implementation to try.  At time of writing, the stratagem with
+     the most popular support seems to be electing more podling contributors
+     directly onto the IPMC, but the thread has not yet tailed off.
