All newly accepted projects start in Incubation while they work to meet the requirements to graduate to Adopted. This allows us to consider and support projects at different levels of maturity and industry adoption, as long as they align with our mission of lowering the barrier to entry for developing and using open source software in the motion picture industry.

In order to achieve Adopted status, projects must demonstrate a healthy number of committers from a diverse contributor base, an ongoing flow of commits and merged contributions, achieve a Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge, and complete an initial license scan of the project codebase, among other requirements.
