That is not always true.  The Apache Software Foundation does not
require that new contributions be in the form of a copyright assignment.
However, the ASF has not rejected such an assignment when it has
been offered.  If there is a legitimate reason for desiring to
assign copyright to the ASF and there is nothing legally preventing
such an assignment, then I believe the board of directors would be
willing to accept ownership of copyright for code contributed
to one of our projects.

However, I suggest that you find out first whether there is
sufficient interest at Apache to support a collaborative project.
