Great to hear of your interest in this proposed project.

It's not a hard requirement. Most projects start with a working-but- 
not-finished code base. It's been shown that an existing code base  
makes it easier to attract a community, but an existing specification  
might be sufficient to motivate a community. The response to the  
proposal is probably a good indicator as to the level of interest.

So if you know of others, talk it up and have them participate in this  
discussion thread.

"Mentor" is an official role in Apache. It's necessary for a Mentor to  
be part of the existing Apache community and to have experience with  
"The Apache Way".

I assume you're not already an Apache committer. If that's the case,  
you can participate as a committer if the Kato project is accepted.

Best regards,
