Re: [Catacomb] [PROPOSAL]Catacomb joining Apache
I totally agree with this idea. Catacomb can get many benefits from ASF
as Gianugo mentioned.
One thing I'd like to mention is that it would be cool if Catacomb can
be a subproject of Apache httpd project
(http://httpd.apache.org/modules/) rather than the Apache incubator (if
possible) so that we can get some attention from the Apache HTTPD

Since my first experiments with Catacomb, I've been always thought
that the very right place for this code would be right inside the
Apache HTTPd project, as a mod_dav plugin/extension.
I had some first random chats with a few Apache and Catacomb people,
and it seems that both sides would welcome the move, which I foresee
as a great win-win situation since:
- Apache would gain mod_dav momentum, both in terms of a cool
implementation offering DASL and DeltaV and as a noticeable set of
skilled and willingful developers;
- Catacomb would gain a lot in terms of visibility and robustness,
since it would be joining the HTTPd team with lots of knowleadgeable
people as well as gaining a large set of developers;
- Catacomb would also solve all the infrastructural issues, since it
would be using the Apache infrastructure in terms of mailing lists,
code repositories (both SVN and CVS), issue tracking and the like.
Should you welcome this move too, know that currently every codebase
joining Apache has to go through a formal incubation process,
described in detail at http://incubator.apache.org. This requires
quite a bit of "paperwork": a proposal should be filed and, if
approved, the move will start under control of the Incubator PMC
(Project Management Committee). You might want to read the Incubator
FAQ to get a first idea on how this process work. It might seem
ankward at first sight, but you should understand that the final
purpose of this somehow heavyweigth process is to ensure both code and
community robustness. Finally, I'm volunteering to do the initial
paperwork and help you in the process.
