Please review the documentation and procedures at and then come back
to this mailing list with specific questions.
If parts of the documentation are not clear
then please tell us and we will try to remedy.

It sounds like you have not yet gathered a community
around your codebase. This is a requirement prior to
entering incubation at the ASF. You need to already
have a group of diverse people working with you.

You would need to start a project somewhere, e.g.
at your own website, or via or
or, etc.

How to gather people initial people to join you
is your challenge. You could try discussing your
ideas on one of the general ASF mailing lists, e.g.
Perhaps create some online documentation to describe
your project.
