Unfortunately (well, for you, not for Apache :-)) it doesn't work like 
this with the ASF. If you carefully read all the project guidelines and 
incubation proposals you'll see that to get into Apache you have to 
follow a very strict set of requirements in terms of community first and 
  code base next (but community is what really matters).

While I understand that it might sound harsh to you (the typical 
reaction is like "what the heck, I'm givin my cool stuff away and those 
guys are being picky?"), this is one of the main reasons for Apache to 
continue serving just the best of breed in Open Source software. If 
you'll be patient enough, I'm sure you'll learn to appreciate the 
"Apache Way".

Hmmm... I'm getting an 'Error during logon: "null"' which doesn't seem 
much promising. :-/
