I remember Amaya: it was an interesting experiment.
Wasn't it a W3C project that was briefly funded in the mid-1990s,
but that struggled to maintain momentum when funding dried up?
I guess much may have happened since I looked.

I see you use the word "resurrect" there.
Apache is not in the business of necrophilia!

Apache doesn't propose anything.  Developers/Communities (having discussed
it amongst themselves) present a proposal to Apache in accordance with the
incubator guidelines[1].  If you want to submit a proposal, you should start
by reading the guidelines and other incubator documents.

Note that a prerequisite for incubation is that there should be a
viable developer community around the project.  Does Amaya have that?
