Hello Marcel,

Yes, I don't have community, so I hoped to find it here.
BTW missing community does not mean that libraries are useless.

Imagero is still commercial library and is used by few big companies like
Agenzia Ansa.
I decided to make it open source now.

I really don't have much time to go through incubator process etc.
So again, I hope find here someone who could help me.

If you want these projects to become part of Apache, the standard process is
to write a proposal for them, and take them through incubation. During that
process, we will determine if there is a community supporting the codebase
and if you follow the ASF philosophy and guidelines for collaboration. The
best place to start reading is the incubator website

I must be honest, if you state you're looking for someone else to take over,
it does not sound like you have a community to support these projects and
just transferring the code to Apache won't work.

Greetings, Marcel
