+= Guide to Successful Community Building
+Apache Incubator PMC
+2002-10-16
+:jbake-type: guide
+:jbake-status: published

+:toc:
+:imagesdir: ../images/
+
+Help to improve the system by posting a patch for
+this document to the incubator section of JIRA or a
+comment to the link:lists.html[general] list at
+incubator.
+
+== Abstract
+
+The intent of this document is to help podlings the
+importance of building an open and diverse community for
+their project. It gives guidelines on how to accept new
+committers and PPMC members, and how to enable more
+community involvement, taking off the burden of answering
+every question yourself.
+
+== What is an open and diverse community?
+
+A major criterion for graduation is to have developed an open
+and diverse link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/glossary.html#Meritocracy[meritocratic]
+community. Time has demonstrated that these kinds of
+communities are more robust and productive than more closed
+ones.
+
+=== People
+
+As a project grows, it needs to renew itself by accepting new
+committers. A project needs to learn how it can recruit new
+developers and committers into the community. Accepting new
+committers usually increases the diversity of the project. So,
+this process is very beneficial. link:#notes-community[Community building] requires energy
+which could have been spent on code development but this cost
+is an important investment for the future of the project.
+
+The openness of the community is not only measured by the
+number of contributors. Open and respectful discussions on the
+mailing lists are vital. Ways to resolve technical conflict
+without destroying personal relationships must be learned.
+
+=== Communication
+
+
+Mailing lists are the life blood of Apache communities. They
+are the primary mode of discourse and constitute a public and
+historic record of the project. Other forms of communication
+(P2P, F2F, personal emails and so on) are secondary. There are
+well founded fears about use of these media for project
+communication. Though many projects successfully blend other
+forms of communications, care needs to be taken since
+out-of-band communications have led to difficulties in the
+past. The reason is that communications on other than the
+public mail aliases exclude parts of the community. Even
+publicly advertised IRC chats can be exclusionary due to time
+zone constraints or conflicting time commitments by community
+members who might want to participate.
+
+Apache project mailing lists are public, well indexed and well
+archived. This allows anyone to monitor (both in real time and
+by browsing the archives) what's happening. Opinions expressed
+are public and poor behavior risks a poster's reputation.
+
+Private communications tend to be more candid but also more
+likely to be ill-judged. Back channel communication tend to be
+divisive, excluding some members of the group. This tends to
+have a corrosive effect on the collective spirit of the
+community. Mistrust builds when opinions backed by blocks of
+developers arise fully formed on list.
+
+Communication through other channels also reduces the chance
+of link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serendipity[serendipity].
+As with most social networks, most subscribers to a mailing
+list never post and most posts come from a tiny minority of
+subscribers. Some passive subscribers are just interested in
+where the project is going but others understand related
+fields and have a limited intersection of interest. This
+second group will often post when this topic arises on list.
+Using public mailing lists to develop designs allows the
+chance encounter of ideas which often results in innovation.
+
+If alternative forums are used by a project, it is important
+to try to minimize the chances of problems arising. All
+matters of substance need to be moved back to the mailing
+lists. Public records should be kept and posted back to the
+list. Regular reminders should be posted to remind people that
+other secondary forms of communication exist.
+
+There are a limited number of topics such as security issues
+and discussions about people which are best handled in
+private. As much business of the project as possible should
+take place on public lists but the private list is available
+for those matters of a sensitive nature. Good netiquette
+requires that permission from the poster should be sought
+before making public, posts made to a private list. Try to
+avoid cross-posting between public and private forums. Take
+care not to post a reply to a private post to a public forum
+without permission.
+
+Learning to use mailing lists effectively is very important.
+If this can be achieved, then you have shown to be a lively,
+active and successful community. The future looks bright.
+
+=== Community Building
+
+Before a podling graduates, it must create a diverse and
+self-sustaining community. Community building is tough: it
+takes time, effort and more than a little magic. There is no
+secret recipe, just hard work. In order to overcome this
+obstacle, committers may need to devote more time to community
+building and less to development.
+
+The link:mailto:community@apache.org[community mailing list] is open to all Apache committers. This is the right
+list for questions about community and on community building.
+Subscriptions should be from an Apache email address.
+
+==== Raising The Profile
+
+Sometimes, a podling is just not well-enough known. There
+are simply not enough users to allow new developers to be
+recruited. Overcoming this means finding ways to raise the
+profile of the podling. Some ideas:
+
+- Improve the website
+- Improve the information provided within each release and release more often
+- Committers who blog should join link:http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#planetapache[PlanetApache]
+- Use grassroots media
+- Encourage downstream distributions to include a packaged version
+- Submit talks to conferences
+- link:http://www.feathercast.org[Feathercast]
+- Write articles
+
+==== Building a community by stepping back a little
+
+
+If the podling has lots of users but very few new
+developers then this means that more work is required to
+encourage users to become developers. A common cause of
+this is that committers are too quick to create code to
+solve user problems. It's good to respond quickly to
+requests by users. However, once a project gains momentum,
+it may be more productive for the long term health of a
+project to encourage users to become more involved at the
+expense of user satisfaction.
+
+Try to encourage expert users to answer questions. This
+may mean intentionally allowing a time gap before
+answering user questions. Encourage users to post by
+taking the time to deal politely and positively with
+misunderstandings and by replying to threads which have
+been answered well by a user to confirm that they are
+right. Avoid engaging in flame wars on user lists. Ignore
+trolls.
+
+Try to encourage users to become developers. When they
+give a good answer that isn't covered in the
+documentation, ask them to submit a patch. When users
+suggest a good design or extension, ask for volunteers to
+help implement rather than just coding it up.
+
+==== Helping Developers Become Committers
+
+If a podling has no trouble attracting developers but
+trouble retaining them long enough for them to become
+committers then this highlights an issue with the
+recruitment process. To become an Apache committer, a
+developer needs to hang around long enough to accumulate a
+track record of contributions. This often requires
+encouragement and help from existing committers.
+
+Promptly reviewing patches is important. The way that
+patches are applied is also important. Provide credit in
+the commit message and when closing the JIRA. It's also
+good to encourage developers by suggesting new related
+work they may like to volunteer for.

+
+This document is under link:#help-wanted[development]. At the moment, this
+is just a skeleton outline.
+
+== Background
+
+This document is descriptive not normative. It discusses and describes
+the process of incubator entry and offers some views about how to approach it.
+It is not an inflexible standard but
+represents a consensus condensed from previous discussions on the
+incubator general list.
+          
+=== Help Wanted!
+
+Help to improve the system by posting a patch for this document to the
+incubator section of JIRA or a comment to the general list at incubator.
+
+== Understanding The Acceptance Process
+
+The acceptance process is simple in theory but complex in practice.
+
+The theory is that candidates are accepted or rejected by a vote on a mailing lists.
+Anyone can vote (and are link:participation.html#general-list[encouraged] to do so)
+but only eligable votes are binding on Apache. For candidates
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Sponsor[Sponsored]
+by the *Incubator* this means members of the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[Incubator PMC].
+
+In practice, the process is more complex for candidates who want to give themselves
+the best chance of being accepted.
+
+Apache policy is set by the Board either directly or through it's special committees.
+The incubation PMC is responsible to the board and so it is the duty of each PMC member
+to vote against a proposal that does not adhere to this policy.
+
+link:/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html[Incubation Policy] state clearly when a .
+All policy is decided by PMC vote and so represents an active consensus. Though PMC members
+are free to vote in whatever way they choose, it is reasonable to expect PMC members
+to vote against a proposal that does not satisfy policy.
+
+However, satisfying current policy is not sufficient. Acceptance is a democractic process
+requiring positive approval by the electorate. The guides and other documentation are not
+policy. They are approved only through lazy consensus.
+
+See:
+- [links to posts and threads]
+
+== Notes On The Process
+
+=== The Proposal
+    
+=== The Vote
+
+When the proposal seems finished and some sort of consensus has emerged, the
+proposal can be put to the vote.
+
+The right time is a matter for judgement. Ask the
+link:/incubator/Roles_and_Responsibilites.html#Champion[Champion] for advice
+or ask on the mailing list. It is usually best to ensure that the discussions
+and debates surrounding the proposal are complete before moving to a vote. This may
+mean move discussions which are not about the proposal to separate threads.
+
+The right duration for the vote is also a matter for judgement [link].

+It is not an inflexible standard but represents a
+consensus condensed from previous discussions on the
+incubator general list. It also describes some of
+the first steps that should be taken after
+graduation.
+
+*This is just a guide. Policy is stated link:https://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html[here].*
+
+Help to improve the system by posting a patch for
+this document to the incubator section of JIRA or a
+comment to the link:lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org[general] list at
+incubator.
+
+== What is Graduation?
+
+Graduation is the act of a podling becoming either a
+subproject under an already existing Apache project, or
+becoming a top level Apache project. Graduating is a
+democratic process: in the end, it comes down to a *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*. Note
+that during your stay in the incubator, you are already busy
+with the process of Graduating: by adopting Apache procedures,
+growing and fostering your community, having (civil) fights
+concerning code style (tabs versus spaces), cutting releases
+and so forth. All these acts have an influence on your
+projects graduation.
+
+The road to graduation is pretty clear: depending on whether your
+project wants to become a top level project, or join as a
+subproject under an already existing project the steps are
+fairly simple but do take time and effort. This document
+provides guidelines for making this process run smooth.
+
+This document is offered for guidance and education only.
+Actual policy is documented in the link:../incubation/Incubation_Policy.html[Incubation PolicyGuide] in 
+link:../incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Graduating+from+the+Incubator[this]
+section. Please post any questions about graduation
+to the link:lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org[general incubator list].
+
+== Whether to Graduate to Subproject or to Top Level Project
+
+Each proposal has a link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Sponsor[Sponsor].
+The identity of the Sponsor indicates the natural
+destination. For proposals sponsored by the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board] or by
+the 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IncubatorPMC (IPMC)], this is a top level project. For others,
+this is as a subproject of the sponsoring project. However, the
+destination is fixed only on graduation, not entry. Projects
+grow and evolve during the graduation process. As
+graduation approaches, this original preference should be
+reviewed based on where the project is now.
+
+Graduation as a subproject is only possible if the
+subproject still falls within the scope of the project and
+requires the consent of the project link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#structure[PMC].
+Graduation as a project requires the formation of the new
+project by the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board].
+
+The link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]
+will also express a democratic opinion. For those seeking
+to graduate to a subproject this *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+is to approve the
+transfer. For those seeking to graduation as a top level
+project, this will be a recommendation to the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board].
+Expect IPMC-ers to ask questions about the project
+including about the choice of destination. This is part of
+the normal process.
+
+== Before You Graduate
+
+Before you start thinking about graduation, you need to make
+sure you are ready and meet the requirements imposed on Apache projects.
+This section will provide a shortlist for podlings to
+determine if they meet the criteria for asking graduation.
+
+=== Graduation Check List
+
+The following is a short checklist giving an overview, not
+a substitute for reading the content below.
+
+* Preparations
+** Complete (and sign off) tasks documented in the link:#notes-status[status file]
+** Ensure link:#notes-names[suitable names] for project name and product names
+** Demonstrate ability to link:#releases[create Apache releases]
+** Demonstrate link:#community[community readiness]
+** Ensure link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor[Mentors] and link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC] have no link:#notes-issues[remaining issues]
+* Decide upon link:#subproject-or-top-level[destination]
+* Prepare a link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] *(top level candidates only)*.
+* link:#subproject-acceptance[Subproject acceptance *VOTE*] by destination Project *(subproject candidates only)*
+* link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[Incubator PMC (IPMC)]:
+** For top level candidates, this is a link:#ipmc-top-level-recommendation[recommendation *VOTE*]
+** For subproject candidates, this is a link:#subproject-graduation[graduation approval *VOTE*]
+* Final link:#notes-on-hand-over[hand-over]
+* Consider post graduation link:#project-first-steps[tasks]
+
+=== Checking the Status File
+
+The status file records and summarizes incubation-related
+information on the podling. The 
+link:ppmc.html#Incubator+ASF+Board+Reports[PPMC] is
+responsible for keeping this file current. Before you are
+able to graduate, all tasks need to be completed.
+
+The status file is a great way of keeping tabs on how your
+project is doing and what needs to be done to meet the
+graduation criteria. The link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[Incubator PMC]
+will check this
+file when they vote on the graduation of your project.
+Once all tasks are done and the listed criteria met, your
+project may be ready for graduation.
+
+The status file of the JUDDI project is link:http://incubator.apache.org/projects/juddi.html[one example].
+
+== Ensure suitable project name and product names
+
+Please read link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/naming.html[detailed documentation here].
+The "Process for ensuring suitable project and product names" is mandatory for every podling which wants to
+graduate.
+
+== Creating an Apache Release
+[quote,Eric Steven Raymond, http://catb.org/esr/writings/cathedral-bazaar/cathedral-bazaar/ar01s04.html]
+====
+Release Early, Release Often
+====
+
+Projects need to cut releases. Apache projects need to
+understand how to cut Apache releases. Therefore it is an
+important step during your stay in the incubator to
+demonstrate the ability to create an Apache Release.
+
+Podlings do not need to actually *publish* a
+release to demonstrate that they understand how to
+accomplish such a feat. However, creating a release that
+is approved by the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[incubator project management committee] is usually the
+simplest way to do this.
+
+If you are going to cut a release (which is highly
+recommended), then please read the link:releasemanagement.html[Incubator Release Management Guide] for hints, tips and guidelines for cutting a
+release that will get approved by the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]
+without problems.
+
+== Creating an Open and Diverse community
+
+A major criterion for graduation is to have developed an
+open and diverse link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/glossary.html#Meritocracy[meritocratic]
+community. Time has demonstrated that these kinds of
+communities are more robust and productive than more
+closed ones.
+
+Apache projects are self-sustaining and self-governing
+communities. Long term success and health requires that
+these communities understand how to:
+
+- recruit users, developers, committers and PMCers
+- take responsible collective action
+- disagree in public on technical matters without destroying personal relationships
+- create an open, positive and inclusive atmosphere on the mailing lists
+
+Graduation tests whether (in the opinion of the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC])
+a podling has learned enough and is responsible enough to
+sustain itself as such a community.
+
+Read more on how to successfully build an open and diverse
+community for your podling in the link:community.html[community guide].
+
+As a project grows, it needs to renew itself by accepting
+new committers. A project needs to learn how it can
+recruit new developers and committers into the community.
+Accepting new committers usually increases the diversity
+of the project. So, this process is very beneficial. link:community.html[Community building] requires
+energy which could have been spent on code development but
+this cost is an important investment for the future of the
+project.
+
+The openness of the community is not only measured by the
+number of contributors. Open and respectful discussions on
+the mailing lists are vital. Ways to resolve technical
+conflict without destroying personal relationships must be
+learned. Learning to use mailing lists effectively is very
+important. If this can be achieved, then you have shown to
+be a lively, active and successful community. The future
+looks bright.
+
+The project is considered to have a diverse community when
+it is not highly dependent on any single contributor
+(there are at least 3 legally independent committers and
+there is no single company or entity that is vital to the
+success of the project). Basically this means that when a
+project mostly consists of contributors from one company,
+this is a sign of not being diverse enough. You can
+mitigate this requirement by admitting more external
+contributors to your project that have no tie to the
+single entity.
+
+Growing an open and diverse meritocratic community is not
+something that just happens: it takes work. Read the link:community.html[building a community guide] for
+guidelines, hints and tips on how you can accomplish this
+for your project.
+
+=== Other Issues
+
+The Incubator relies more on people than rules: rather
+than try to create rules to cover every circumstance,
+rules are developed and codified as required. People
+are trusted to evolve process and policy. This guide
+can only document the most common issues and it is
+possible that there are other concerns that may require
+resolution that are not covered.
+
+Podlings who are unsure if they are ready to graduate may want to consider completing the link:http://community.apache.org/apache-way/apache-project-maturity-model.html" target="_new[Apache Project Maturity Model].  You may find this to be a useful guide when looking at various factors in your podling's community.
+
+== The Graduation Process
+
+=== Graduating to a Top Level Project
+
+Top level projects are created by the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board]. The
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[Incubator Project Management Committee (IPMC)] can therefore only
+recommend to the Board that the project is ready to
+graduate to a top level project.
+
+Graduation to a top level project requires:
+
+- a charter for your project
+- a positive community graduation *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+- a positive IPMC recommendation *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+- the acceptance of the link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] by the Board
+
+This process can take a while, since it typically sparks
+some discussion inside the community and possibly in the
+IPMC.
+
+Here's an estimated timeline for the graduation process.
+It should help you understand when you should start
+ramping up your community to get timely graduation and
+make the process smooth.
+
+image:/images/graduation-timeline.png[Graduation timeline]
+
+For each event we scheduled one or two weeks. Even though
+a *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+is usually limited to 72 hours, you should prepare
+for discussion and possibly having to cast a revote with a
+revised proposal.
+
+=== Community Graduation Vote
+
+A community needs to be willing to govern itself
+before it can become a top level project. A good way
+to demonstrate this is through a free *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]* (by the
+community) on the graduation proposal.
+
+This *VOTE* is not a requirement but is recommended. It
+is unlikely that link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]members 
+will vote to approve graduation unless the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor[Mentors]
+and community positively express their readiness for
+graduation. It is wise to notify the 
+link:lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org[incubator general list] that the community vote is starting. Please do not Cc the
+vote to the general list as that creates confusion, instead you can either:
+- FWD the [VOTE] e-mail to the general list, or
+- Send a different copy to the general list indicating that a graduation community [VOTE] is in progress 
+
+=== Preparing a Charter
+
+So, in this case a suitable 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board] resolution should be
+drawn up by the community advised by the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor[Mentors].
+Committers can access the podling template for
+resolutions in the 
+link:https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/board/templates/podling-tlp-resolution.txt[committers svn repository]. Also, resolutions are included in
+the Board minutes, which are posted publicly 
+link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/calendar.html[here ] . These contain numerous examples. Good
+examples include:
+
+- Harmony (see section *E. Establish the Apache Harmony project* in the link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/records/minutes/2006/board_minutes_2006_10_25.txt[October 2006 Board minutes])
+- OFBiz (see section *B. Establish Apache Open for Business Project* in the link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/records/minutes/2006/board_minutes_2006_12_20.txt[December 2006 Board minutes])
+- Cayenne (see section *C. Establish Apache Cayenne Project* in the link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/records/minutes/2006/board_minutes_2006_12_20.txt[December 2006 Board minutes])
+
+link:/guides/graduation-template.txt[Click here for a template of this proposal to use.]
+
+The original proposal and the status document should
+be consulted when creating this document. Projects
+evolve over time and some deviation from the original
+proposal may well prove acceptable. The 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board]
+resolution is the ultimate definition of the scope of
+an Apache project. So, it is important that it
+reflects the vision for the project as it appears on
+the eve of graduation.
+
+A good resolution is neither too narrow nor too broad.
+If the project's scope is too narrow, then its
+activities will be unnecessarily constrained. If a
+project's scope is too broad then it may lack focus
+and suffer from governance issues.
+
+If you read these resolutions you also see that you
+need to appoint a link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/glossary.html#Chair[Chair]
+for your project. It is up to the
+link:ppmc.html[PPMC] to choose one
+person to act as the chair after graduation.
+
+=== The Recommendation Vote
+
+The link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] should be proposed on the general
+link:mailto:general@incubator.apache.org[incubator list] before a *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+is started to allow feedback. Once a consensus has been reached, a *VOTE*
+should be started on the same general incubator list by a member of the link:ppmc.html[PPMC] proposing
+that the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]
+recommends the resolution to the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board].
+
+=== Submission of the Resolution to the Board
+
+Top level projects are created by a link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] by the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board].
+Once the link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] has been
+finalized and consensus reached, it should be
+submitted to the Board. For inclusion in the agenda
+for the next meeting, the resolution should be
+submitted at least 72 hours before that meeting. A
+calendar for meetings is link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/calendar.html[available].
+
+Business for the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board] should be submitted by a post
+to the *board* mailing list. Posting from
+an Apache address is recommended. Mixing public and
+private lists on a post is not recommended.
+
+The *board* list is private.
+The usual link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#management[netiquette]
+for Apache private lists should be observed. So, it is
+recommended that only the podling and
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]
+private lists are CC'd (rather than the general incubator
+list). Please treat responses with appropriate
+confidentiality.
+
+The submission should include:
+- A clear subject (for example *Establish Foo TLP*)
+- A brief introduction
+- The name of proposed VP
+- Links to the *VOTE* threads
+- Summary of the *VOTE* results
+- The link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] text
+
+For example:
+[source]
+====
+From: &lt;you _at_ apache dot org&gt;
+To: &lt;board _at_ apache dot org&gt;
+CC: &lt;&lt;project&gt;-private _at_ incubator dot apache dot org&gt;
+Subject: proposed resolution: establish &lt;project&gt; TLP
+
+Dear Apache Board,
+
+&lt;Project&gt; is ready for graduation out of the incubator. So, please
+consider the draft resolution below at your next meeting.
+
+&lt;thank you, best regards, personal note if you wish, etc etc&gt;
+
+&lt;your name&gt;
+
+--
+References:
+
+Home: &lt;project home page&gt;
+Vote by project: &lt;link to vote thread on project list&gt;
+Vote by incubator: &lt;link to vote thread on general list&gt;
+
+Resolution draft:
+
+&lt;&lt;resolution goes here, 72 characters wide,
+indent with 4 spaces&gt;&gt;
+
+--
+&lt;your e-mail sig, if you have one&gt;
+====
+
+Please try to keep the *board* list traffic low. Do not
+submit reminders or ask whether messages have been
+received on the list. link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/members.html[Apache Members] have access to the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board]
+archives and may
+observe Board meetings. To follow the progress of a
+resolution, please ask a friendly Member or 
+link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/[Director].
+
+=== Press Releases for new TLPs
+
+Once there is clear consensus that the recommendation will happen,
+a member of the PPMC should contact ASF Marketing &amp; Publicity at
+*press(at)apache(dot)org* if your project is interested in a
+formal press release announcing your graduation.  This should be done
+roughly at the same time that the board resolution is sent.
+
+== Graduating to a Subproject
+
+Subprojects are accepted by a Project Management
+Committee. The link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[Incubator Project Management Committee]
+needs to approve the graduation of the podling to a
+subproject.
+
+=== Community Graduation Vote
+
+A community needs to be willing to govern itself
+before it can become a top level project. A good way
+to demonstrate this is through a free
+*link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+(by the community) on the graduation proposal.
+
+This *VOTE* is not a requirement but is recommended. It
+is unlikely that 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]
+members will vote to approve graduation unless the 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor[Mentors]
+and community positively express their readiness for
+graduation. It is wise to copy the 
+link:lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org[incubator general list] and the 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Sponsor[sponsoring top level project] when the *VOTE*
+is proposed.
+
+=== Subproject Acceptance Vote
+
+
+A formal *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+by the Project link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#structure[PMC]
+to accept the podling as a subproject is a
+prerequisite. Sometimes, projects may feel that the
+podling has grown too big and would be better as a
+top level project. The Chair of the project is the
+right contact.
+
+=== Graduation Approval Vote
+
+To graduate as a subproject, the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Mentor[Mentors] should start a *link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html[VOTE]*
+thread on the link:lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org[general list] proposing that the 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC] signs off the graduation of the podling as a
+subproject. This *VOTE*s should only be started once the
+project has *VOTE*d to accept the subproject.
+
+== Life After Graduation
+
+=== Handover
+
+This is the transfer of virtual resources from the care of
+the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[IPMC]
+to the care of either the new or existing top
+level project taking charge of the graduating community.
+
+==== Graduating as Subproject
+
+This is the simple case. The 
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Chair+of+the+Incubator+PMC[IPMC Chair] and the Chair of the project accepting the
+graduating community organize the handover between
+themselves.
+
+==== Graduating as New Top Level Project
+
+When graduating to a new project, the process is more
+complex. Creating a new project requires a 
+link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/calendar.html[resolution] 
+to be passed by the link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/[Board].
+Usually once this happens, members of the Board will
+inform the appropriate chairs and link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#structure[PMCs].
+Occasionally, this will be missed: if more than 72
+hours has passed since the Board meeting, it may be
+worth someone posting a polite reminder to their
+favorite director.
+
+The link:#tlp-resolution[resolution] will appoint a Chair for the new
+project. The Chair will also be appointed an 
+link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/[Officer]
+of the Apache Software Foundation. This allows them
+access to official resources of the foundation as well
+as granting power to act on behalf of Apache.
+
+Once appointed, the new Chair needs to:
+
+- Subscribe to the *board* mailing list
+- Subscribe to the *infrastructure* mailing list
+- Ensure that they have been added to 
+link:https://people.apache.org/phonebook.html?service=pmc-chairs[the PMC chairs group (pmc-chairs) in LDAP].
+The ASF Secretary should do this without any action on the part
+of the new chair. As with above, if it has not happened within
+72 hours of the resolution passing, contact the secretary to remind them.
+- Check out the link:https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/foundation/officers[*foundation/officers*] folder from the private repository.
+Users with member or pmc-chairs karma can do this.
+- Add yourself to the #foundation/officers/affiliations.txt# and the #foundation/officers/irs-disclosures.txt* files with the appropriate information.
+- Add your details to the foundation web site Officer list at link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/index.html[http://www.apache.org/foundation/index.html] (in SVN at link:https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/site/trunk/content/foundation/[https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/site/trunk/content/foundation/])
+- Review appropriate documentation:
+** link:http://www.apache.org/dev/pmc.html#chair[PMC Chair Duties]
+** PMC link:http://www.apache.org/dev/#pmc[documentation]
+** Jakarta link:http://wiki.apache.org/jakarta/RoleOfChair[Chair guide]
+** Incubator link:http://incubator.apache.org/guides/chair.html[Chair guide]
+** Reporting link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/calendar.html[calendar]
+- Work out a reporting schedule with the link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board]. For
+the first three months after graduation this will
+be monthly. After that, the project should slot
+into a quarterly reporting schedule. Now is a good time to remove
+the project from the Incubator reporting schedule.
+- Work with the link:http://www.apache.org/dev/index.html#infra[Apache Infrastructure team]
+to set up the top level project
+infrastructure. The various infrastructure tasks that are required
+(see link:#transfer[check list])
+should be consolidated into a single issue (see link:https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4069[this]
+for example). This should be created in the category
+link:https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&amp;mode=hide&amp;pid=10410&amp;sorter/order=DESC&amp;sorter/field=priority&amp;resolution=-1&amp;component=10858[TLP Admin].
+- Ensure the PMC is added to the committee-info.txt file at https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/board/committee-info.txt
+There are 3 sections which need to be updated; see instructions in the file.
+You may need to get a member to help with this.
+
+They should then be able to start assembling the new
+link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#structure[PMC].
+The starting membership is listed in the
+link:#tlp-resolution[resolution]. However, the Chair of the new project
+needs to ensure that private list is created and the
+membership subscribed.
+
+Members of the new PMC need to:
+- Subscribe to the private mailing list for the project
+- Review appropriate documentation:
+** Apache link:http://www.apache.org/dev/pmc.html[PMC Guide]
+** Related link:http://www.apache.org/dev/#pmc[documentation]
+
+Once all this is in place, resources can start to be
+handed over to the new project.
+
+Please continue to hang around the Incubator and help
+new podlings have an easier time than you did!
+
+=== First Steps Outside the Incubator
+
+Graduation is the first step in what is hopefully a long road.
+There are some issues which incubation may not cover.
+
+==== Transferring Resources
+
+When a project graduates, then the infrastructure
+resources (mailing lists, websites, source, etc.) need to
+be transferred from the Incubator to a project's new home.
+
+Although the below checklist is still generally useful, *the infrastructure process has been streamlined*, see
+http://www.apache.org/dev/infra-contact#requesting-graduation .  You might also want to check JIRA checklist tickets for projects that graduated in the last month or two.
+
+Checklist:
+
+- Update the Incubator status records
+** Like the rest of incubation, graduation is a process. Updating your
+status records as you progress will enable others to assist.
+** Update the podling 
+link:#notes-status[status page].
+All sections should now be filled in
+including *EXIT*. Take some
+time to read carefully since this page
+forms the final public record for
+graduation.
+** Update the Incubator
+link:http://incubator.apache.org/projects/index.html[status page] to denote the project as "graduating" when you commence,
+then as "graduated" when you are finished.
+The notes link:#unincubate[below] will assist.
+* Source
+** Post an announcement to the development list
+telling everyone that the repository is about
+to be moved
+** Post an announcement containing instructions
+for developers describing how to #svn switch# their workspaces
+** Update site, wikis, *pom.xml* and
+other resources to point to the new repository
+location.
+* Websites
+** Transfer the podling website
+*** Load the website into its new home. See link:http://www.apache.org/dev/#web[infra notes].
+** Update the *incubator/site-publish/.htaccess* entry to
+redirect traffic from the old URLs to
+the new.  (svn location is at *http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/public/trunk/content/.htaccess*) -
+NOTE: new Top Level Projects will most likely get an automatic redirection of their website from the Incubator hostname
+once the TLP's distribution repository is moved by INFRA.
+** Post an announcement to user and
+development lists
+** When using Maven: update *pom.xml* for the location
+of the website, as well as the place
+where the site plugin will deploy the
+web site (when applicable).
+* *(Top Level Projects Only)* Add Project To link:http://www.apache.org[www.apache.org]
+** Check out https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/site/trunk
+** Patch #templates/blocks/projects.mdtext#
+** Commit, and if you have karma then link:https://cms.apache.org/www/publish[publish] the updated www site
+* Mailing lists
+** When your mail lists have been moved by infrastructure,
+post an announcement to your lists.
+** When using Maven: update *pom.xml* for
+the new mailing list address(es). Also update any
+documents on your website that show how to
+subscribe to the lists and/or find archives.
+** Send notice to any mailing list archivers
+that the
+address has changed, and possibly the location of
+your project (if it is listed there as being part of the
+incubator).
+** Update website: replace links to old archives with
+links to new ones and add new links to historic
+archives from incubation.
+** Check project-private mailing list membership.
+Mentors should be allowed to remain if they wish to
+do so. The subscriber list should otherwise match
+that on the resolution. See link:http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mail-moderate[this] and 
+the link:http://www.ezmlm.org/[EZMLM]
+"Moderator's and Administrator's Manual".
+** Update mail addresses including:
+*** confluence commit messages (see adminstration documentation)
+*** issue tracking messages (see administration documentation)
+*** The chair should have karma to perform these tasks.
+** Double-check that all of your lists have sufficient active link:http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mailing-list-moderators[moderators].
+* Issue Tracking
+** Check that the issue tracking system used by the podling reflects the project's new status.
+*Distribution mirrors
+** After you have  a release at your new home (#/dist/${project}/# area), remove any distribution artefacts from your old #/dist/incubator/${project}/#
+area. Remember from the mirror guidelines that everything is automatically added to archive.apache.org anyway.
+
+==== Final Revision of Podling Incubation Records
+
+When a project has finished its graduation steps, then the incubator resources
+need to be updated to indicate that the project is no
+longer incubating. Here are a few of the items that need
+to be done:
+* Update the svn *incubator/trunk/content/projects/${project}.xml* file to show the project's status.
+* Update the podling summary metadata file,
+i.e. *incubator/trunk/content/podlings.xml* svn file.
+See the content/podlings.dtd and follow examples of other recent graduates.
+At the beginning of the process, add the "graduating" element.
+When finished the graduation process, then:
+Change the podling status to "graduated";
+add the "enddate" attribute to document when the project graduated;
+add the "resolution" element (see other project examples);
+remove the "graduating" element.
+* After your project has finished reporting to the Incubator, then
+remove the "reporting" element from that *podlings.xml* file.
+* Ensure that other svn resources for your project have moved to your new home.
+* Review this whole graduation guide.
+* NOTE: Please edit this guide to add missing steps and clarifications.
+
+==== New Responsibilities
+===== Oversight
+
+During the stay in the Incubator, the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29[Incubator PMC (IPMC)]
+was responsible to the
+link:/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board[Board]
+for oversight. A graduated project must now take
+responsibility for its own oversight.
+
+A project needs to ensure that its code base is
+clean from an IP perspective. New committers need to
+recruited, educated and mentored. Quality releases
+need to be cut. Community spirit needs to be maintained
+and conflicts resolved positively. Board reports need
+to be accurate and prompt.
+
+Help is still available but the
+appropriate bodies (infrastructure, community, legal
+and so on) should now be approached directly.
+
+===== Security
+
+Each project needs to be able to manage security issues
+discovered in their code. By their nature, these issues
+need to be dealt with in private. These issues may either
+be dealt with on a separate security list or on the
+private list. Which list is suitable for security issues
+should be noted.
+
+Volunteers need to be found from the
+link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#structure[PMC]
+to work with the Apache security team and act as
+first contacts on security matters. The new project
+should make contact with the team soon after graduation
+and not wait for the first issue to be raised.
+
+Projects should adopt a positive attitude towards
+security issues. It is easy to gain a poor reputation
+by mishandling of these issues. There are many people
+at Apache with considerable experience in this area
+so ask first.
+
+===== Stay In Touch
+
+Passing through the incubation process gives a very
+valuable perspective. Please help to improve the process
+by guiding new podlings and by developing improved policy
+and documentation on the link:lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org[general] list.

+These equally apply to podlings. The Incubator project is responsible for all podlings
+and so is the receiving PMC. So, when a podling requests IP clearance, the
+IPMC wears link:http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#hats[two hats].
+This may be a little confusing at first.
+
+The Incubator PMC must approve the clearance. This indicates that the project is
+happy to receive the code donated. When a new podling is created, this is done
+by the identification of existing codebases in the proposal. Otherwise, the
+IPMC delegates this decision to the PPMC.
+
+As usual, three binding votes are required. So, Mentors need to be involved in
+IP clearance for podlings. If too few binding VOTEs are posted on list,
+the VOTE will need to be posted to the general list for ratification.
+
+The second hat is technical IP clearance. Here, the IPMC needs to check that the
+paperwork is in order. Once the acceptance vote has been approved, an officer
+or member need to complete the process. For a podling, this will typically
+involve a Mentor.

+=== Podling Mailing Lists
+
+Each podling under incubation has its own mailing lists, which should be easily discovered via the
+podling website or via the link:/projects/index.html[podling status pages].
+These are the right place to get involved with a particular project or to ask project specific
+questions. They form the public record of the development of the project.  All lists are link:http://mail-archives.apache.org[archived].

+lists are especially germane for PPMC members and release managers trying to develop their knowledge
+and stay current.
