Hi Dave,

IMO, the Incubator is the "welcome wagon".  Unfortunately, it often greets new neighbors with
a huge list of policies which is not welcoming.  That makes the incubator more iike a bad
Homeowner's Association from a movie.  Or maybe a Boot Camp where only the tough survive and
everyone else washes out.  When I think of the word Incubator, I think of baby incubators
in hospitals where staff goes out of their way to help each baby survive and then thrive,
not one where the goal is selection of a few.

    Hi -
    There has been mentions about lack of documentation, not being able to find documentation,
not being responsible for a policy, and not including the rationale for a policy.
    This morning I remembered something that happened some 49 years ago when I was a child
and we moved to the suburbs of Chicago. A nice lady came over to the house from a group that
called themselves the “Welcome Wagon”. She provided goodies and all kinds of information
about both the local subdivision and the village.
    I wonder if this is something that the Incubator could help build and disseminate?
    An Incubator Welcome Wagon could be a Guide of Guides and include introductory information
    (0) Onboarding
    (1) Community Development
    (2) Infrastructure and Builds
    (3) Legal Policy
    (4) Release Policy
    (5) Press
    (6) Foundation Structure
    This information would come from the definitive committee and the mentors and podlings
could provide feedback to the appropriate committees.
    I think something like this would help the Incubator and Mentors be more facilitator and
less police.
