Apache Incubator




How We Work

Here are some notes about how we have decided to make decisions and changes to the way we work.

How we make decision on our incubation policies

Apache projects usually make releases, and have deliverables. The code they put in is managed through lazy consensus and voting only when it's deemed to be required or requested.

Incubator releases are basically Incubated Projects' release to the Sponsor PMC. So how incubation is done is our "code".

Hence there is no need to "ratify" such rules if there seems to be consensus, as it's much easier to manage.

Because of this, we do not have the "draft" status on our policy docs and simply use them as our guide, that will change in need without
