Subject Re: Contributing and Starting A New Project With Apache

My understanding is that the Apache incubator accepts outside  
projects if they are already in a working shape and have a developer  
and user community around them (although I think the community part  
is something that is not a condition for entering the incubator, but  
is required for graduation, as is often the case with open sourced  
commercial products).

For the list of criteria that the incubator looks at you may browse  
through existing accepted proposals:

As for how you can start, you may register a project on SourceForge  
or a similar free open source dev site and start developing it there  
using Apache license. This is the most straightforward way to learn  
how the open source process works and to build a community around the  

Also I think you did the right thing posting your idea here, as this  
way you may find supporters from within Apache.
