Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Incubator exit criteria
Date Fri, 15 Aug 2014 02:29:44 GMT
Hi!

I've committed the first cut and updated the website. I'm also
adding a special section to the incubator report calling
out projects where we would require a readout from the
mentors.

I would really appreciate if others can help with making
the docs crisper, etc.

Thanks,
Roman.
