+<div class="sectionbody">
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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 <strong><a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html">VOTE</a></strong>. 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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>This document is offered for guidance and education only.
+Actual policy is documented in the <a href="../incubation/Incubation_Policy.html">Incubation PolicyGuide</a> in
+<a href="../incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Graduating+from+the+Incubator">this</a>
+section. Please post any questions about graduation

+<p>Each proposal has a <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Sponsor">Sponsor</a>.
+The identity of the Sponsor indicates the natural
+destination. For proposals sponsored by the <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board">Board</a> or by
+the
+<a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29">IncubatorPMC (IPMC)</a>, 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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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 <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#structure">PMC</a>.
+Graduation as a project requires the formation of the new
+project by the <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board">Board</a>.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Incubator+Project+Management+Committee+%28PMC%29">IPMC</a>
+will also express a democratic opinion. For those seeking
+to graduate to a subproject this <strong><a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html">VOTE</a></strong>
+is to approve the
+transfer. For those seeking to graduation as a top level
+project, this will be a recommendation to the <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#board">Board</a>.
+Expect IPMC-ers to ask questions about the project
+including about the choice of destination. This is part of

+communities are more robust and productive than more

+community for your podling in the <a href="community.html">community guide</a>.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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. <a href="community.html">Community building</a> requires
+energy which could have been spent on code development but
+this cost is an important investment for the future of the
+project.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Growing an open and diverse meritocratic community is not
+something that just happens: it takes work. Read the <a href="community.html">building a community guide</a> for

+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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 <strong>incubator/trunk/content/projects/${project}.xml</strong> file to show the project&#8217;s status.
+* Update the podling summary metadata file,
+i.e. <strong>incubator/trunk/content/podlings.xml</strong> 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 <strong>podlings.xml</strong> 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.</p>

+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Existing codebases need to be imported through the standard IP clearance
+process. This means that a Software Grant Agreement
+(<a href="http://www.apache.org/licenses/#grants">SGA</a>)
+or Contributor License Agreement
+(<a href="http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas">CLA</a>)
+need to be submitted
+for all copyright owners. This process may take a while so it is best to
+start as soon as the podling is accepted.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The acceptance of the initial codebases is approved by the
+IPMC as part of the acceptance motion. So, no vote is required by the
+PPMC. Otherwise, follow the standard IP clearance process for podlings.</p>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="sect2">
+<h3 id="establishing_provenance">Establishing Provenance</h3>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Paperwork needs to be submitted to Apache that grants a legal license on the code
+to the Apache Software Foundation.
+As a rule of thumb, if all the material contributors to the code
+are joining the podling as initial contributors, then CLAs (individual or corporate)
+are all you need. The individuals must submit the 'individual' CLA (ICLA).
+If there are employers involved who might claim
+rights in the code, then corporate CLAs (CCLAs) are needed for those employers.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>If, on the other hand, there are material contributors who are &lt;strong&gt;
+not&lt;/strong&gt; joining the podling as initial contributors, or if there
+are additional corporate entities who can claim rights in the code,
+then SGAs are required from those individuals or corporations.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The foregoing is only a rule of thumb. Generally, the mentors of a new project
+will need to consult with <a href="mailto:general@incubator.apache.org">general@incubator.apache.org</a> or the Apache legal team
+about the particular circumstances.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>It may take some time to track down all contributors. It is not necessary to
+have paperwork on file for all contributions before the code is imported.
+It may be necessary to reverse some patches and rewrite areas of code if
+contributors cannot be found or at not happy about given Apache written
+permission to use their code.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>No releases are possible until the provenance of all the code to be release
+has been clearly established and the relevant paperwork filed with Apache. It is
+therefore important to keep the status updated.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Receipts of ICLAs, CCLAs, and SGAs are recorded by the secretary in
+the private foundation repository. Reading is restricted to members and officers
+of the foundation. If there is no officer or member available then ask on the
+general list.</p>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="sect2">
+<h3 id="ipmc_responsibility_around_ip_clearance">IPMC Responsibility around IP Clearance</h3>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The board has charged the Incubator project with management of IP clearance for Apache.
+Instructions are <a href="http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/index.html">here</a>.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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 <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#hats">two hats</a>.
+This may be a little confusing at first.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>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.</p>
