[Incubator] Unresponsive/Inactive Projects

Hi Landon,
Thanks for bringing this up. I agree with you that it makes sense to put projects that are inactive for a longer time on inactive for the incubation process as well. If that then also allows a mentor to assist another project, there is even more reason for this.

So from my point of view a +1 to put inactive projects on hold and let the mentor decide if s/he wants to move on to support another project from the waiting list. The only other prerequisite for this would be that the the inactive project members failed to respond to multiple attempts to contact them.

Thanks, Jeroen

For example: Put an incubation project on "inactive" status after a certain number of weeks without communication to the mentor (or actual progress on incubation tasks). Once the project reconnects with the mentor, they can be taken off inactive status. The mentor can then decide to work again with the project, or we could put the project back on the waiting list.
