To understand why WANdisco wants Bloodhound to be an Apache project,
rather than their own, please read their CEO's message:
  https://groups.google.com/group/trac-dev/msg/5bc628afdd5a4ff3

They approach some things wrong, but I agree with David's sentiment in
that message: the ASF is the best way to create a long-lived, healthy,
and vendor-neutral project. There is a strong assumption that a
community will evolve around Apache Bloodhound, and that is what the
Incubator is for. Most podlings arrive with the hope and assumption
that a community is out there, just waiting to be discovered.

Cheers,
