A new Apache project, providing an entry path to the Apache Software Foundation for projects and code bases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts. Code donations from external organizations and existing external projects wishing to move to Apache will enter through the Incubator.

As a consequence, it is expected that the Incubator will also become a reference for new contributors to any of the Apache projects.
