[OSGeo-Discuss] New incubation procedure

I think we could Vaclav. One of the more extreme ideas I have had is to
just call it "incubation" and only assign mentors when a project has
completed each of the five things we expect and wants a review /
recommendation. It would free us up to take on more projects (no longer
bottle necked on mentors).

My big trouble with this whole thing is the basic one: I want a project to
be open source before being part of OSGeo :) So open source license and
code check is the first step (not the last step).

Perhaps we could allow projects to do automated/grep search for the initial
code check?
