+<p>The Mentors' guide is a go-to place for information about getting a podling up and running from an infrastructure point of view.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>This document targets any Incubating Project member, but
+especially Mentors, who have to ensure that some things get done.
+For a general description of the role of a mentor on an incubating
+project see the
+<a href="/policy/roles_and_responsibilities.html#Mentor">Roles and Responsibilities</a>document.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>This guide is a descriptive and at times
+discursive document. It describes established practices.
+It is informational not normative. Policy is laid down in the
+<a href="/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html">Incubation Policy</a>.</p>
+</div>

+<div class="sect1">
+<h2 id="overview">Overview</h2>
+<div class="sectionbody">
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>After the Podling has been accepted by the Incubator PMC, one of the mentors
+<a href="/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Setting+Up+a+New+Podling">sets up</a>
+the Podling; <em>i.e.</em> adds the podling metadata, creates the initial Podling status page, and
+either creates or requests that
+other resources (mail lists, subversion, bug tracker, <em>etc.</em>)
+be created.</p>
+</div>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="sect1">
+<h2 id="add_to_incubation_summary_file">Add to Incubation Summary file</h2>
+<div class="sectionbody">
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Add the podling to the podling summary file in
+the "incubator" SVN at <strong>content/podlings.xml</strong>
+(e.g. copy the entry from another podling that also has status="current")
+and see <a href="website.html">instructions</a>.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Please do this step ASAP after Acceptance. Other setup procedures utilize
+this metadata.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Add a <strong>'reporting'</strong> tag (after <strong>'description'</strong>) with the attribute <strong>'monthly="true"'</strong>
+and the appropriate "group" attribute, based on the month in which  the podling
+entered incubation (1 for January, April, July, October, 2 for February, May,
+August, November or 3 for March, June, September, December). The text content
+of the 'reporting' tag must contain the initial list of reporting months,
+starting with the month after the podling entered incubation.  Below is an example of the final XML snippet</p>
+</div>
+<div class="literalblock">
+<div class="content">
+<pre>    &lt;podling name="PodlingName" status="current" resource="podlingname" sponsor="Sponsor" startdate="YYYY-MM-DD"&gt;
+        &lt;description&gt;A description of the podling, for the status page and reports&lt;/description&gt;

+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Once the first three reports are complete, the monthly attribute should be removed
+and the list of months removed as well.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The first report might be
+very short. However it is better that the Incubator PMC can help to
+guide through the early setup stages.
+For more details see the

+<div class="sect1">
+<h2 id="initialize_podling_status_page">Initialize Podling Status Page</h2>
+<div class="sectionbody">
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>A mentor needs to
+<a href="website.html#Edit+your+project+status+page">create the web page</a> that will track the project&#8217;s status.
+A mentor will also need to update it until
+<a href="ppmc.html#Project+Status+Updates">others in the project&#8217;s PPMC can update it</a>.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The status
+page is the incubator&#8217;s record of the progress made.
+It MUST be kept update to date during incubation.
+Some of the information is available from the proposal.
+As the startup process continues and resources are
+created the status SHOULD be updated.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The template contains lists of actions which may be needed
+to start up a podling. All those which do not apply should
+be deleted.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The status page is a useful aid to workflow. Volunteers
+can use it to sign up to the various tasks and monitor their
+progress. Once the mailing lists are set up and prospective
+committers subscribe then these may be used for discussion.</p>
+</div>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="sect1">
+<h2 id="resources">Resources</h2>
+<div class="sectionbody">
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Resources should be requested in a particular order, and based on paperwork processed.  Do not request source repositories before SGAs are filed, for instance.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="sect2">
+<h3 id="request_required_resources">Request Required Resources</h3>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The proposal should include a list of required resources. All of these will
+require active set up. Some are created by infrastructure after an appropriate
+request, others can be set up by any IPMC members (typically mentors).</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Mailing lists should be created first. Other resources typically
+post information to these lists.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="sect3">
+<h4 id="request_mailing_lists">Request Mailing Lists</h4>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Apache mailing lists require volunteer moderators. New moderators can be
+<a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mailing-list-moderators">changed later</a>
+but at least one volunteer is required before the mailing lists can be set up.
+Moderation is a reasonably
+<a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mail-moderate">easy task</a>
+though moderators may want to set up
+<a href="http://spamassassin.apache.org/">spam filtering</a>.
+Having at least three moderators is recommended to spread the load.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The proposal should contain the rest of the information that needs to be collected
+before the mailing lists can be requested. Incubator is the responsible top level project.
+So the domain <strong>MUST</strong> be <strong>incubator.apache.org</strong>.
+For example:</p>
+</div>
+<div class="ulist">
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>dev@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>commits@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>private@${podling}.incubator.apache.org</p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>For initial community building it is usually appropriate to only have
+a "dev" list, to keep the discussions focussed. Later add a "user" list
+if needed.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="listingblock">
+<div class="content">
+<pre>Commits under *http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/_${podling}_*
+will be emailed to *commits@${podling}.incubator.apache.org*.
+Any deviation will
+require special configuration in the *asf-mailer.conf* file by the IPMC.</pre>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Mailing lists creation is a task for the <a href="#who-infra">infrastructure team</a>. The
+infrastructure team offers a tool that simplifies the creation of mailing lists.  You can access the
+link:https://infra.apache.org/officers/mlreq/incubator" target="_new[Incubator Mailing List Request Form]
+to request a list.  A notification will be sent to private@incubator when the lists have been created.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Remember to update the project status file with mailing list details. Prospective committers
+and mentors will need to subscribe. Email them once the status file has been updated. Inform
+any existing mailing lists or forums previously used by the project.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Once the <strong>commits</strong> list is created, the project MUST review
+the <strong>/incubator/${podling}</strong> tree, since any commits made prior
+to the list&#8217;s creation will have generated no email trail.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="sect4">
+<h5 id="mail_archives">Mail Archives</h5>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Archives at <a href="http://mail-archives.apache.org">http://mail-archives.apache.org</a> for the public
+mailing lists will be setup as part of the mailing list creation process. No action is
+required by Mentors. The archives will be <a href="http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/">visible</a>
+as soon as posts have been made (and moderated) to these lists.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>You can also leverage link:https://lists.apache.org" target="_new[lists.apache.org] for
+mailing list archives.  There is a login link in the top right corner, which allows you to respond to
+threads from within the web application.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Many projects are independently archived externally (for example, at
+<a href="http://www.mail-archive.com/">The Mail Archive</a> and
+<a href="http://marc.info/?q=about">MARC</a>)
+Independent archives help to
+increase project visibility as well as preserving a independent historic record.
+These subscriptions are not automatically created. If desired, subscribe manually.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Subscriptions to news-to-mailing-list bridges (for example, <a href="http://www.nabble.com">Nabble</a>)
+must also be created manually. Subscribing helps accessibility and visibility but Nabble news
+users may not be aware that they are posting to a mailing list.</p>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="sect4">
+<h5 id="mailing_list_administration">Mailing List Administration</h5>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Apache uses <a href="http://www.ezmlm.org/">ezmlm</a>. See the
+<a href="http://www.ezmlm.org/man/ezmlmman.html">manual</a> and
+committer <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#mail">mail FAQ</a>
+for more details.</p>
+</div>
+</div>
+<div class="sect4">
+<h5 id="mailing_list_transition">Mailing List Transition</h5>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Independent mailing lists and groups are perfectly acceptable but development should
+happen on the official mailing lists at Apache. If a project has existing mailing lists,
+forums or groups the community needs to consider their future and plan for the transition

+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>At Apache, a <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#developers">developer</a>
+(aka contributor) is anyone who actively helps to develop our software. This includes more than just coders
+and documenters. For example, anyone who joins in discussions on the mailing lists or answers questions
+from users is also a developer.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Apache is a <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#decision-making"><em>DO</em>-ocracy</a>. The first step along the road leading to
+<a href="#committer">committership</a> is to become a developer. For more information start with

+<h3 id="as_a_committer">As A Committer</h3>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>A <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Committers">committer</a>
+is anyone with write access to the source repository. Election to committership in the Incubator
+works a little differently from the process that is usual elsewhere at Apache.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>Once a podling has been bootstrapped, <a href="#developer">developers</a> are nominated
+and election to committer happens in the <a href="ppmc.html#Voting+in+a+new+committer">usual way</a>.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>When a proposal is just a <a href="/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Candidate">candidate</a>,
+there are two possible approaches (for those interested in committership).</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The proposal typically
+<a href="proposal.html#template-initial-committers">contains</a> a list of initial committers.
+When a podling is bootstrapped, this list is used by the mentors to set up initial accounts.
+So, one way to become a committer for a podling is to be listed on the proposal as an initial
+committer.</p>
+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>The right way to express interest is by a post to the list with a brief introduction.
+Piling onto a proposal (by adding your own name as an initial committer) is impolite.

+</div>
+<div class="paragraph">
+<p>A podling needs to learn how to recruit new committers from its developers. So,
+another way is to show up on the list and start helping with the development.
+This path will help the podling more than adding your name to the list of initial committers.</p>
