Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "MentorRebootProposal" by AlanCabrera
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2015 17:38:41 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

The "MentorRebootProposal" page has been changed by AlanCabrera:

New page:
=== The Reboot ===

All the mentors are transitioned to emeritus. All the emeritus mentors can be reinstated merely
by asking the IPMC.  Emeritus mentors who wish to remain mentors must acknowledge that they
will perform their duties as out lined in a clearly defined document.  

The champion role would be removed.  This role is merely a mentor who is publicly stating
that s/he will be more active in the podlings incubation.  IMO, this lets the other mentors
off the hook and dilutes responsibility.

Shepherd roles would be removed; this is yet another avenue for diluting responsibility.

=== Mentor Qualifications and Responsibilities ===

All mentors must be IPMC members, period.  People who wish to become mentors that are not
in the IPMC must be a novice mentor, whose mentorship is not counted as an active mentor,
for at least one podling's incubation.  ASF members can become IPMC members.  Non-ASF members
must mentor a project before becoming an IPMC member.

A mentor is free to become inactive but must explicitly state this by notifying the PPMC and
IPMC or else the mentor risks being removed, not deactivated, for not performing their duties.
 An inactive mentor can become re-activated by simply notifying the PPMC and IPMC.

An active mentor is removed from a podling if that mentor does not review/sign off on a release.
 An active mentor is removed from a podling if that mentor does not review/sign off on a board
report.  An inactive mentor is not removed from a podling for reasons of inactivity.

A removed mentor can be added back on to the podling, and thus the IPMC, after a 72 lazy consensus
vote by the IPMC.

=== Podling Requirements ===

Podlings MUST have a minimum of two active mentors.  Podlings that do not have the minimum
of two active mentors are put on hold until they find enough mentors to fill the quota.  Being
put on hold means that no committers can be added, no PPMC members can be added, and no releases
can be performed.  It does not stop development

Releases MUST receive +1 votes from at least two active mentors.  IPMC members who wish to
review releases for a podling must become a mentor.

=== PPMC/PMC membership ===

Mentors that are not part of the original podling proposal do not automatically become committers
of the podling simply by being its mentor; they must be voted in to be committers.  Mentors
cannot stay on the podling’s PMC after it graduates unless they are voted in as a committer.
 Newly graduated podlings that require additional mentor oversight can have mentors stay on
for six months, after which they are removed from the PMC unless they are committers.
