As far as I have understood (others with more knowledge, might want to confirm or correct
me), a project cannot “just” be activated again.

What you can do easily is one of two possibilities:
- Clone the project to a new project, which then have its own life. If you want to do this
within ASF, you need to follow the rules for creating a new TLP.
- Copy the project into POI (keep it as a separate directory etc). This can be done without
any paperwork at all, you just need to put a short text in the release notes of POI. The advantage
here is you can change whatever you want, the disadvantage (if that is a disadvantage) is
that you cannot make a XMLBeans release.

I recommend simply copy the source files into POI.
