Subject [RT] a minimal set of docs for incubator.apache.org
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 09:29:15 GMT
Hi,

Like others, I'm not too happy with the current
http://incubator.apache.org/ content.

How about starting a new, minimal set of docs that are more
maintainable and understandable?

IMO, the following would be sufficient, with one page per topic:

1. What's the Apache Incubator? (homepage)
2. Lifecycle of a podling, from proposal to graduation, with many
links to existing examples (proposals, committer votes, graduation
threads, etc.)
3. Release checklist: criteria for approving a release
4. Previously asked questions (a la
http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html, includes IP clearance info)
6. Glossary of terms (though that might belong to the top-level
apache.org site instead)

I'm just considering the narrative info, not the podling status pages
or clutch stuff in this refactoring. That status info might move to
podlings.incubator.apache.org to better separate it and keep the main
site minimal.

I've got some draft content for 2. and 3., that I've been collecting
in my mentoring activities.

WDYT?

-Bertrand
