Subject Re: Trying to become incubator project..
Date Wed, 16 Dec 2020 00:23:09 GMT

Hi,

In order to be accepted as an incubating project you need to put together a proposal. The
Incubator PMC would also have to agree that the project is a good fit for the ASF. I would
suggest you take a look at this [1] and some other incubator proposals [2] (newer ones are
at the top). If you could expand on why you want to become an ASF project that would also
help.

You would need to change the license as all Apache projects need to licensed under the Apache
license. Having MySQL as a dependancy may also be an issue as it is GPL licensed. Apache project
can’t have non optional dependancies that are GPL licensed.

From a quick glance your  project doesn’t seem to be very active, that might make it difficult
to attract other developers. It would also be good to know your projects experience with Open
Source projects. Do you have anyone involved that is active at the ASF or another open source
community?

Thanks,
Justin
