There is no "certification" process. Anyone is free to do whatever
they want with Apache software as long as that use conforms to the
Apache trademark policy. This includes setting up a third party
organisation to accept donations, payments, license fees or whatever
you want to pay for your own distribution and subsequent contributions
to the Apache upstream project.
