Subject Getting started with an incubator project
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2007 18:29:22 GMT
Hello.  I have a question about getting an outside project into the 
incubator... I am the project lead for the DataVision project 
(, an open-source report writing 
tool... it may or may not actually be used by the OfBiz project (there 
seems to be a bit of a question whether it is or not!).

I recently wrote up a proposal for DataVision joining the ASG, and I 
opened it up for discussion on the DataVision mailing list.  The 
reaction was good, so I'd like to take the next step...

...The problem is, I'm not sure what that actually is :)

I've spoken to a handful of ASF folk looking for a champion, because 
that sounded like the right answer, but no luck thus far.  I've also 
been told that having a champion isn't strictly speaking required, but 
whether it is or isn't, I'm not sure how to proceed

Should I perhaps post my proposal to a Wiki somewhere for comment and 
perhaps the hope that someone wants to champion it?  Any guidance would 
be greatly appreciated (I have received some early guidance from a 
current ASF member, and I greatly appreciate his help, but I didn't want 
to continue to pester him privately and I thought a post here might be 
more appropriate)

Thanks in advance,
