FYI, Apache Software Foundation does not hold the copyrights, unlike the Free 
Software Foundation. Each contributor retains their respective copyrights. 
ASF creates a licensing model, where there is a back-to-back license from the 
contributor via the ASF to the downstream users.

This may be a minute detail that is not important to you, but I thought it 
would be prudent to be pointed out.

I have not been able to make any evaluation of the project credits, but I am 
sure others will do. In the meantime, I recommend you to go through the check 
list set up at Jakarta;

This would give you an idea of how the Incubator will review the project.
