|[adoptium-pmc] Creating the Adoptium Incubator project|
The working title for the new project is "Eclipse Adoptium Incubator".The driver for creating the project now is that Alibaba and others would like a shared location to collaborate on ideas currently being discussed. Using the established governance model of Eclipse Adoptium for such collaboration ensures the work is open and vendor-neutral.
The intent of the proposed Eclipse Adoptium Incubator is to foster collaboration, and hopefully results in work proceeding to contribution by their original authors into upstream projects, including OpenJDK, or moving the work into a new Eclipse Adoptium project. The Adoptium Incubator would not make any releases itself.
The Eclipse Foundation Development Process has explicit provision for such permanent incubator projects . Thanks to Wayne Beaton for pointing us to this method for structuring the Adoptium project.
Creating such an incubator project does not require a formal project proposal as was done for Temurin etc., rather the PMC can simply request one and the to the Eclipse Management Office will create it.
At this point I'm just opening it up to the PMC to discuss the idea, decide how the incubator will be defined, and pick a suitable name. When we are happy we'll put in the request.
 The minutes needs to be approved before publishing publicly.  https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/adoptium/charter  https://www.eclipse.org/projects/dev_process/#4_9_Incubators Regards, Tim
