The development of an incubation process

The development of an incubation process - providing scaffolding for the formation of new projects and communities of interest through their critical formative stages - was an early objective for the Apereo Foundation.  Documentation detailing the Apereo incubation process is available from this website. The process was approved by the Apereo Board in August 2013.

The process places great emphasis on effective mentoring processes for new projects, software communities and communities of interest.  If you are interested in becoming an incubation mentor, please contact ian.dolphin[at] The program includes a number of training opportunities for mentors, arranged with OSSWatch at the University of Oxford. Please consider participating.
