Re: [tools-pmc] GEF Incubator Proposal

Another benefit is that you can have a lower bar for committers on the incubator. You can use the incubator to grow folks into committer-worthy status. Just a thought.

BTW, the only benefit would be parallel IP. You can do those other things without the hassle of creating and managing a second project. And even parallel IP could be handled by storing the initial code off site. Until it's ready for the review.

Of course, if you want to do it, I'm fine with that. It just a pet peave of mine.

I don't know, that's a good question. I thought that incubators provided a number of advantages for new projects and new ideas, such as:

    * Parallel IP
    * Pre 1.0 (wrt to API)
    * A clear indication to early adopters of what to expect

I don't have a problem with creating this work as a sub component of GEF, although some of this work is clearly "incubation" style work (new ideas with undefined API that will hopefully graduate -- but that will depend on the quality and demand of the work being done).

Anthony, as the GEF lead, what do you tihnk?
