Subject Re: Evaluating the 'Open Sourcing' of Daffodil DB

I really don't what you mean by "selected" by the ASF.  From what I 
understand, if you have community and interest from some Apache members 
it is not hard to get a project incubated.

I can say that based on the feature set alone, I would love to 
integrate Daffodil into Geronimo.
