The project incubation committee is responsible for overseeing the incubation process for new projects entering the foundation. The incubation committee provides resources to assist new projects to reach full membership, and makes recommendations to the board when they feel projects have completed incubation.

Progress in the incubator
The following projects are currently in OSGeo incubation:
- gvSIG: gvSIG Incubation Status | gvSIG Provenance Review
- Marble Marble Incubation Status
- MetaCRS: MetaCRS Incubation Status | MetaCRS Provenance Review

The above pages are used to track the progress of incubation projects and are used by the developer team (and OSGeo mentor). In many cases the links will take you to a project specific wiki or website in order to be closer to their target community.
When projects have completed the incubation checklist their mentor will recommend them to the Incubation committee for graduation.
