Nope, I don't think so.

The bit that I quoted was from a Labs document, but was talking about rules for
the Incubator. I am confused because I can't find anything in the Incubator
rules about this. So I'm wondering if this is an omission, or if the Labs
document is in error.

We don't have code, but we have a few interested people.

Not possible, because some of our contributers are not ASF committers.

There would be no sensible place to do this.
