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 (lives 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 (see also [https://community.kde.org/Policies/Application_Lifecycle Application Lifecycle])
+
* 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
+
