Project Incubation in a Nutshell
The goal of the Incubation Process is to fulfill OSGeo requirements for open community operation, implement a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license verification and to ensure general good project operation. Graduating incubation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
