Project Lifecycle Criteria

OW2 project classification

The project life cycle is composed of three stages: Incubation, Mature and Archive

New projects start in the Incubation stage then may move to the Mature stage and, ultimately, might end up in Archive stage depending on periodic evaluation by the Technology Council.

The Technology Council has decided for a set of criteria to evaluate migration from the Incubation to the Mature status.

Other criteria for deciding whether a project should move to the Archive status will be defined soon.

The original list of criteria which were considered for classification can be found here.
