Thanks for responding and yes we have considered sourceforge route as
well, but we want to explore our options with Apache foundation as there
are mutual benefits here. Some of the work that we may open source are
not trivial projects, but a suite of products that might extend the
usability of apache foundation projects such as Jakarta. So it does fall
into that "interesting project" category and we would like to find out
more about voting rules, community building and other things that
Incubator/apache may help us with. Since this is a general list, perhaps
detail discussions on this topic are not appropriate here, and may be we
can communicate offline if necessary and I can get right people involved
from our side.

Appreciate your help.

P.S. Sorry about your Palm crashing, hope you were able to recover
some/all of the data. As devices get more and more pervasive, it is not
cumbersome to back up the data wirelessly these days...

The easiest thing to do is to build an existing codebase and attract a 
community to it first.  It may be easier to start this elsewhere on
neutral ground like  If you have an interesting 
project, I'd be happy to help advise on Apache voting rules, community 
etc for such a project.

time in 3 or so years and lost all of his data and he hasn't backed it 
up in about a year :-(

FAQ, but can't seem to figure out what is the next step. Perhaps if you
can forward this to appropriate person or send me information on who I
need to talk to, I would appreciate it.
