Incubator/Notes/Akademy 2013 BoF
KDE inKubator BoF Potential project: * Razor-Qt/LXDE (in discussion) * Mer (in discussion) * Electronic voting system (agoravoting.com) * Frescobaldi * Calibre * Lyx * Zombie proprietary?? (dropped former proprietary project to put back on track, Blender anyone?) Outside projects but from KDE people, why? visibility? convenience? Needs investigation, known cases (all on github btw): * Tomahawk * Mirko's ThreadWeaver examples * ownCloud What do we provide to a project which got through the joining process? * FLA availability * Infrastructure (repos, ml, forums) * Support (forums staff, promotion) * Translations * Rest of the community aware of the coming projects (likely a ML) * GSoC/GCI slots * KDE Trademark * Be invited at events What we require from a successfuly integrated project * Culture * Complies to the manifesto * Governance similar to the other KDE projects * Healthy team (metrics needed) * Bus number * Volunteer/paid proportions * Community issues (on-going? regularly?) * Learn how to teach/mentor * Clear product vision * Visited/contributed to other related projects * Uses english for code and communication * Domains/trademarks transferred to KDE e.V. (?) * Be present at events Projects get out of the incubator into playground or kdereview depending on the technical maturity (!= from community maturity) Integration process: * Starts with evaluation of the existing project * Setup infrastructure, accounts, etc. => Allocate a "godfather" => Provide a starter kit (doc, translations, etc.) * "KDE Incubated Project" stamp * Regular reviews to see progress against the initial evaluation * Stay in at least for the minimum incubation time How to deal with some team failing the integration? * Deadline? Minimum/maximum times? TODO: * Dig in Eclipse and Apache incubators (kevin) * Look at YCombinator, some of what they do might apply (lydia) * Charity incubators? find one to investigate (cornelius) * Ask Riddell to add AGPL to the list of allowed licenses (edulix) * Look at successful previous integrations (Simon, kdenlive) * Try to find failed integrations in KDE * Create a list of the initial infrastructure to setup * Create the incubated project starter kit
