A two-stage incubation model based on analysis of Apache and Eclipse processes might help other organizations build their own incubation process and better manage risks. The popularity of free and open source software has boosted the creation of several kinds of communities around F/OSS projects. Successful communities such as GNU, Mozilla, the Apache Software Foundation, and the Eclipse Foundation drive innovation while delivering high-quality, enterprise-class software. Yet, because communities are composed of loosely coordinated contributors mainly guided by practice, no shared agreement exists on a single set of methods and processes.
