Dear Wiki user,

The "LucyIncubatorProposal" page has been changed by PeterKarman.


  == Affiliations ==
  Marvin Humphrey is employed by Eventful, Inc and works primarily on this project.
+ Peter Karman is employed by American Public Media and contributes to this project and several
other open source projects.
  == Sponsors ==
  === Champion ===
- The Champion is a person already associated with Apache who leads the proposal process.
It is common - but not necessary - for the Champion to also be proposed as a Mentor.
- A Champion should be found before the proposal is formally submitted.
  === Nominated Mentors ===
- Lists eligible (and willing) individuals nominated as Mentors [definition] for the candidate.
- It is common for additional Mentors to volunteer their services during the development of
the proposal. The number of Mentors for a Podling is limited only by the energy and interest
of those eligible to Mentor. Three Mentors gives a quorum and allows a Podling more autonomy.
The current consensus is that three or more Mentors makes the incubation process run more
- Note that since Mentors are appointed by the Incubator PMC at the end of the acceptance
process, they have no formal role until the proposal is accepted. But informal enthusiasm
from nominee Mentors is taken as a good sign.
- There is no restriction on the number of informal mentors (note the small m) that a Podling
may have. These can be very useful but have no formal role in the process.
  === Sponsoring Entity ===
  The Sponsor is the organizational unit within Apache taking responsibility for this proposal.
The sponsoring entity can be:
