Another thought:

What if a company considers to introduce an open source strategy,
but the decision depends on whether the code is accepted as an
Apache project or not? I think they will avoid showing the code
before the project is accepted or rejected.

I'm not experienced when it comes to these things, I hope you
tolerate my silly statements and maybe I can even learn
something :)
