Guide to Successfull Graduation at the ASF

Many projects aspire to join the Apache Software Foundation and are anxious to take the plunge. The ASF has instituted a special project for guiding and mentoring aspiring projects to become a successful project under the Apache umbrella: the incubator. Any new project needs to go through the incubator before it can be established as an Apache project. Many projects have passed through the incubator and some got stranded there. Learn what makes a project successful and what makes a project fail. You will learn from real projects that successfully graduated or failed for various reasons. Learn how to enter the incubator, foster your project under guidance of the incubator's mentors, how graduation works and what comes next.
