Subject Getting Started with Incubation
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2012 01:29:27 GMT
The purpose of going through incubation is to ensure that we as a
community are operating under the Apache Way.  This means a few
different things, including decision making, branding, legal
compliance, and community development.  Rather than go through each of
these principles here, I have included links to resources that those
of you who are new to Apache should take some time reviewing

Now that we have or have requested the basic resources we need to
operate as a project, we can get on with the show.  Throughout the
course of the project, there will be many decisions that we need to
make as  a community.  The ones that I think we should tackle first as
'warm up' exercises are as follows:

1) What type of Wiki?  ASF Infra has two different types available:
MoinMoin & Confluence.  There are tradeoff for each; but, Infra's
preference trends toward MoinMoin due to its management simplicity.
That doesn't disqualify Confluence, but something to be aware of.

2) Logo.  We need a project logo for Apache Streams.  Anyone have suggestions?

3) Committer/PMC metadata.  Infra is still working on the website; but
as soon as it is ready to go, we need to figure out a process & place
for storing committer information.  This may tie into later
discussions about build tools.

These 3 things are minor, but a good way to break the ice for the project.
