This status template is used by your project team (and project mentor) to start incubation and communicate with the incubation committee.  As you progress through incubation please update this page as it is an initial indication you are ready for graduation.
To assist in answering these questions we have provided the ''evaluation criteria'' used by your mentor.
When ready your project mentor will ask you to fill in the final [http://www.osgeo.org/incubator/process/project_graduation_checklist.html project graduation checklist]. Your project mentor will cordinate review with the incubation committee and make the final motion for graduation.
