A project going through the incubator will be in one of the following four states:
 
* candidate
 
* incubating
 
* active
 
* archived
 
 
 
== Candidate ==
 
* provide description of the project to be incubated
 
* must include the people committing to the project
 
* must have a plan to be in compliance with the manifesto
 
* must be supported by a sponsor which will help during the incubation phase
 
 
 
== Incubating ==
 
* the sponsor actively works toward getting the project setup:
 
** make sure the needed infrastructure is provided by the community (leaves in our current playground area)
 
** help grooming the community
 
** more generally verifies it's going in the right direction
 
* project can't have a top level website yet (incubator.kde.org/foo ?)
 
* project can't use the KDE brand yet
 
* sponsor regularly touches base with the committee regarding progress made
 
* if project is stalled (see details at the end of the active phase) or keep not conforming to the manifesto it gets archived
 
 
 
== Active ==
 
* project enters kdereview and follows the process from there
 
* whole team behind the project is assumed to behave like other KDE teams
 
* project respects the manifesto
 
* stalled projects (no release for a year, no commits, no mailing-list activity)
 
** current maintainers are contacted to check what's happening
 
** if no chance to see activity again or no reply from existing maintainers after a month then a call to new maintainers is done
 
** if after a month no new maintainer showed up project gets archived
 
** if a new maintainer shows up he gets a six month trial, if the project is still inactive it gets archived
 
 
 
== Archived ==
 
* all data is archived
 
* VCS gets closed
 
* mailing list disabled
 
* only last download is available
 
* if someone wants to pick it up, it goes back to the candidate phase
