Incubation status reports


Status report for JuiCE for the Incubator JuiCE is just entering incubation, and is currently in the process of starting up. We are currently waiting on CLAs from core developers to enable us to get started. * is the STATUS file up to date? (also post link) Yes - * any legal, cross-project or personal issues that still need to be addressed? No. * what has been done for incubation since the last report? JuiCE has only just entered the Incubator. We are currently in the process of getting infrastructure up and running, accounts set up and code imported. * plans and expectations for the next period? Getting code imported, web site setup and development started.

April 2006

Good activity in the previous quarter. Werner Dittman was voted in as a committer and has been refactoring the initial code into a more long term format. A test build has also been created on a Win32 platform.

The team involved in this are all committers on the xml-security project. Over the next quarter we will be looking to promote this from the Incubator into the xml project as a part of xml-security.

Project specific

These action items have to be checked for during the whole incubation process.

These items are not to be signed as done during incubation, as they may change during incubation. They are to be looked into and described in the status reports and completed in the request for incubation signoff.

Collaborative Development

  • Have all of the active long-term volunteers been identified and acknowledged as committers on the project?
  • Are there three or more independent committers? (The legal definition of independent is long and boring, but basically it means that there is no binding relationship between the individuals, such as a shared employer, that is capable of overriding their free will as individuals, directly or indirectly.)
  • Are project decisions being made in public by the committers?
  • Are the decision-making guidelines published and agreed to by all of the committers?

Licensing awareness

  • Are all licensing, trademark, credit issues being taken care of and acknowleged by all committers?

Things to check for before voting the project out.

Organizational acceptance of responsibility for the project

  • If graduating to an existing PMC, has the PMC voted to accept it?
  • If graduating to a new PMC, has the board voted to accept it?

Incubator sign-off

  • Has the Incubator decided that the project has accomplished all of the above tasks?
