ASL 2.0 is fine with me.
I've been reading over the incubation policy notes posted at
is a lot of good information about the incubation process and I
encourage everyone involved with the project to read the document.
As I understand it, to enter the incubator, we need both a champion
within the ASF (to nominate the project) and a sponsor (to, well,
sponsor the project). According to the docs, a sponsor may be one of (a)
the ASF board, (b) an ASF top level project (TLP) or (c) the incubator
Project Management Comittee. Given the relationship of Catacomb to
Apache HTTP Server, I strongly feel that option (b) is the best choice
for us to pursue. This would entail Catacomb being recognized as a
suitable sub-project of Apache HTTP Server project.
From the recent emails on this subject, I am under the impression that
Gianugo will be working on writing up the proposal to our sponsor - does
this also mean that he will act as our champion? Also, the page
referenced above doesn't list what should be in the proposal, in fact it
has an entry left for someone to complete that section with a short list
of what should be in the proposal! There is, however, a few links to
previous proposals at
gives us something to go on. The process description stated that the
project description / proposal should be sent to the mailing list(s) of
the sponsor (email@example.com).
Lastly, regarding commit access, each of the persons listed in Sung's
email as initial committers need to fill out and submit a Contributor
