If I am correct these are only needed in the case you become a committer.
As you have indicated that you want to maintain the code, I think this is a
good idea. On [1] the process is described. This requires some action on or
end, we should start the formal discuss and vote if I understand it

I am not sure of this step.. Are binding votes needed, and if so how many?
I think Marcel (or another mentor) can better answer this. I couldn't find
a direct resource describing this process.

This one has to be filled in and send to Apache to be able to accept the

 As far as I can tell this is ok. Though I think it should be the sources
as is, and not a patch. If there are any patches to the original Celix code
I think it is better to send those as individual issues. This keeps
licensing and IP issues obvious and separated from the current Celix

I hope this helps, and a mentor can fill in the gaps!
