Perhaps it is an issue of understanding the path to Incubator and trying to deal with the
corporate policies regarding open-source donation.  Donation to Apache seems to be the clearest
path with the least number of obstacles.

Can you expand on this?  Is there a different process for donating a large body of work to
an existing Incubator project?
