Subject Number of projects in Incubation [was: [VOTE] Release Apache Mynewt 0.9.0-incubating-rc1]
Date Sat, 28 May 2016 00:52:39 GMT
I respectfully disagree... One of the main reasons we went from 1 to 3
recommended mentors, way back in the days, was that those 3 would be the
primary people to ping for binding votes, without limiting the rest of the
IPMC to do so.

If that is no longer the consensus, then we need to look at the bigger
picture.
At the moment, the number of incubating projects are staggering (>50), and
take a look at https://projects.apache.org/ . I think it looks like both
the RATE-Incomng is increasing and the RATE-graduating is slowing down
recently, OR that there was a particularly strong effort to get projects to
graduate in 2011-2012 to bring the incubation set down.
Either way, I think we need to manage to drive down the number of projects
in incubation.

An additional graph that would be super-interesting to get is "Months in
Incubation" for the current podlings, plotted over time.

Cheers
Niclas
