-The Incubator is the entry path into The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) for projects and
codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts. All code donations from external
organisations and existing external projects wishing to join Apache enter through the Incubator.
+The Apache Incubator provides services to projects which want to enter
+the Apache Software Foundation (ASF).
 
-The Apache Incubator has two primary goals:
+It helps those incoming projects (called "podlings") adopt the Apache
+link:http://apache.org/theapacheway/[style of governance and operation]
+and guides them to the ASF services available to our projects so they
+can become top-level ASF projets ("TLPs").
 
-- Ensure all donations are in accordance with the ASF http://www.apache.org/licenses/[legal
standards]
-- Develop new communities that adhere to our http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html[guiding
principles]
+The Incubator delegates a few mentors for each podling, as "on the
+ground" agents to act as liaisons with the various ASF teams:
+link:http://incubator.apache.org[Incubator PMC],
+link:https://selfserve.apache.org/[Infrastructure team] etc.
+and facilitate the podling's growth and operations.
