Hi Alexander,

there are two things I'd advise you to do.

One, put up a project proposal in the incubator wiki:
You can also look at older proposals there.  There is
no need to do this all at once, you can build your
proposal incrementally (adding a champion etc.).

Two, it sounds like your project is related to the
web services world.  So check out the projects under
the Apache WS umbrella (, and
also Apache CXF.  Get on their mailing lists and talk
to them.  They may champion you proposal, or have some
other suggestions.
