Subject Incubation and the @attic.apache.org
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 17:45:48 GMT
At Wed's ASF Board meeting, the board took up the issue of whether
the attic project's charter is appropriate for incubating code that
has not yet graduated into a project.

The conclusion was no; the attic is chartered to handle the actual
projects of the foundation (including incubator *graduates*).

Perhaps a better solution is an incubator sandbox for code, where
anything on its way in (lets say, reviewing new code for licensing
issues) or its way into hibernation (e.g. a project which no longer
has an active PPMC or community).

Any podling or ASF project could invest in retrieving the artifact
to resurrect all or part of the hibernating code, but until that
happens, the code would be dormant.  This would all remain under
the umbrella of the incubator.

WDYT?

Bill
