As I mentioned on Monday, incubating projects now have the ability to start
developing in parallel with the IP review and approval process. That's
clearly good news for all those new projects eager to get a fast start once
they've been created.
In the same Board meeting where this new IP Policy was approved, there was
also an important new directive from the Board to all Eclipse projects. You
can see the resolution in full on our governance page. But basically there
are three key points:
1.. Projects need to conform to a standard template for their website
look-and-feel. This has been a sore point with our user community for quite
a while, as there is a wide range of looks and quality of the various
project sites. Hopefully bringing some order to this will help our community
navigate our site.
2.. Each project which is in the incubation stage must use the incubation
logo and clearly identify their website and downloads as such. (On a related
note, some have expressed unhappiness with the incubator logo, so we may be
having another design contest.)
3.. Projects need to start using the project-info.xml files to keep the
community up-to-date on their status and activities.
So this is basically taking some stuff that the EMO has been encouraging
projects to do and making it Board-supported policy.
Obviously implementing these requirements is going to take some time. Bjorn
will be letting everyone know what the roll out plan is.
