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

We are watching the initial projects go through the incubation process as a method of defining what is required. The following pages track the progress (and experience) of these projects.

Each project may also have a page describing the incubation process on their own community website, the above pages are explicitly for the incubation comittee to learn from experience.
