"Yesterday I had an skype conversation with Justin and Sander Striker, an Apache contributor, and I asked them more about Apache and the Apache Incubator, the entry path into the Apache software foundation for projects wishing to get under the Apache umbrella.

"How things are going at the Apache Software Foundation?

"Justin: We currently have over 100 different projects under the Apache "umbrella" with over 2,000 committers and ~350 members of the foundation. Each project is independently operated by what we call a "PMC". We have about 75 different top-level projects, ~30 or so projects either under Incubation (baby ASF projects), and a bunch of "labs" which are individual projects started by the foundation members.

"What if I want to bring my project under the Apache umbrella?

"Sander: This is what the "Incubator" is about."
