Subject Re: Apache Example project?

The benefits of such an example project to the open source community would extend to projects
that do not yet or will never incubate at Apache. If there is some consideration given to
that group from the outset, even more so. Wouldn't this broadcast The Apache Way to a wider
audience and let those wishing to found any open source project "take what they need" from
it without requiring them to conform entirely?

In any case I think this is a great idea. +1 (non-binding).
